Ireland braces for weather bomb with Storm Barra


Ireland braced for a weather bomb, with Storm Barra’s violent winds and rain slamming the country through Wednesday.
The Irish Meteorological Service issued a red wind warning for three counties in the west and south of the country, with people advised to shelter indoors and some transport and health services suspended. At least 12,000 homes and businesses had lost power by 8:15 am in Dublin.
“To be very clear, there should be no travel and no movement outside of buildings during the status red alert,”
National Emergency Coordination Group chairman Keith Leonard said, according to the Irish Independent.
