Storm Ciara brings fresh Orange flood warning for Galway

A Status Orange weather warning for heavy winds from Storm Ciara has been issued for Galway with a “substantial risk” of flooding.

The weather alert from Met Eireann states that Storm Ciara will continue to produce very strong westerly winds in coastal areas throughout Monday.

Winds with a sustained speed of 65-80km/hr are forecast by Met Eireann, with gusts expected to reach up to 130km/hr.

A combination of Spring Tides and high seas will result in a significant risk of coastal flooding.

It will come into effect at 6am on Monday morning and remain in force until 8pm that evening.

A separate snow and ice warning will also be in effect throughout all of Monday, with some snowfall accumulations expected in the west.
