You could be without power for a week. All of the above are sensible provisions.

If the hurricane hits it, it might end up there.

Thanks Mr S. Sometimes fronts can be sent in advance related to a storm!

Here it’s not related. Just good old Atlantic rain.

Jesus they're just advising/warning people to be prepared, three people lost their lives during Storm Ophellia two years ago and this storm has the potential to be just as severe, how difficult is that to understand

Another non event. Just your typical autumn storm. No chance of a red warning. Windy and wet that’s it

Would probably be quicker driving from Clare to Wicklow with a good tailwind!

Reckon should be ok and will have passed by then?

Most likely yeah. Worst comes to worst, you'll circle the airport for an hour or two

Yes it should have passed by 5.59 pm Look nobody knows at this stage how severe it will be, where/when it will hit, etc, the hint is in the title of this thread "potential" storm.
