    "Don't make unnecessary journeys, don't take risks on treacherous roads. And don't swim in the sea.
    Incredibly people have been spotted in the water here in Blackrock in Salthill today and yesterday."

    This could be a very dangerous storm and will last well over 12 hours the tide will be high for this one so flooding is possible again well worth monitoring the storm on the weather section on boards

    Indeed. Full moon was yesterday too. Always crazier storms around full moon.

    Passed the one opposite the cinema just now, still one lane open and cars driving into park.
    Colour me completely unsurprised at that.

    As long as they don't complain when their cars get flooded!

    Just to say, not sure if the app always had this feature but I feel more up to date than I've ever been since installing it recently and setting up push notifications for warnings. I might have to change the minimum warnings to orange and above. Didn't realise yellows we're issued every single day (recently it seems).

    My kids are holding out hope for a red alert to get them out of school tomorrow.

    What app would that be?. I used to have the city council text service but that went quiet.

    Met Eireann I'd assume.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,873 ✭✭✭ beardybrewer


    Yes sorry, the Met Eireann app. I also had the council text service and same thing happened. Maybe we just need to resubscribe every year? A year ago I discovered them on FB and got the alerts that way. Not the best weather app but worth an install just for the alert push notifications.
    Was going out for drinks in Salthill tomorrow but don't think I'll be leaving the car there overnight this time.

    Met Eireann I'd assume.

    Yes, it's one of my go to apps. The alerts are great and yes, turn off everything yellow and below

    I have to drive to Dublin airport and back tomorrow from about 11.30am returning about 5.30pm. is it mostly Galway where it is to be bad or is it hitting everywhere?

    Orange warning countrywide


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,373 ✭✭✭ BlackEdelweiss


    Any update on the weather locally? Trying to decide if I should send the kids to school as I wont be here to collect them should a red warning be issued and schools close. Does not seem too bad where we are but we are in a bit of a dip and are relatively sheltered.

    A friend that lives out in Clifden says the power went & it was the same for a person I work with from the Tuam area.
