  • Storm Barra

    Not officially named but heading for a direct hit and looks stronger than Arwen which devastated Scotland and North East England. One weather model is predicting sustained 100mph winds off the South Coast which is hurricane level damage. So better start checking and securing anything that might fly into your house or neighbours before Tuesday.

    We haven’t really had a storm of any great substance this year. Remember 20 years ago they were a regular occurrence every winter.

            Seems more major weather events in the last decade than 20 years ago.

              Global warming and I doubt anyone is doing enough to halt it. I would say we would see it affect here sooner than later. I honestly think we have about fifty years left

                We have a piece of land in Wexford, lots of 40 year old conifers , Leylandii, Scots Pine , much older Macrocarpa. I let the neighbours saw up any fallen trees for firewood , but hardly any over the last five years or so. No shortage prior to that.

                        What about closing down the complete country when Hurricane Ophelia was due to hit us .....it turned out to be just an normal winters day......and we were the laughing stock of the world .....a completely deserted Ireland was shown worldwide ...it cost the country millions .....and not a strong breeze in sight.....I remember being in the Mater hospital that day ......and after getting a local anesthetic I was sent home, i had to walk home still groggy as no Taxi's or buses were running ....all because of people that cant do their jobs.....only in Ireland

                            Dublin has an Orange warning now - and a 'strong possibility' of going to red.

                            'Limerick, Waterford, Galway, Mayo, Wexford, Dublin, Louth, Wicklow and Meath are also under an orange wind warning.

                            However, Met Éireann have advised that there is a strong possibility that the status orange alerts will escalate to status red'.


                            Everything is self-evident.
