Over 235,000 homes left without electricity in wake of Storm Isha

Orange weather warning

A large-scale clean up operation has begun all across Ireland following Storm Isha.

Over 235,000 homes have been left without electricity since Storm Isha battered Ireland from around 5pm yesterday until the early hours of Monday morning. While the outages were mainly in Donegal, Sligo, Roscommon, and Kerry, the whole nation has been affected by the storm.

It is difficult to say when the customers will have their power restored.

More than 100 trees have been reported fallen over the last 24 hours, and some roads across Ireland have been made impassable due to the fallen debris and in some cases, flooding.

With the many delayed flights in and out, Dublin Airport will not be charging any additional fees to anyone with cars parked. Dublin Airport are warning passengers to double-check with their airline to ensure their flights are not delayed.

All public transport services are to resume this morning.
