Storm Kathleen, Kerry, Cork, and Waterford Bear the Brunt

Share with your friends:

As Storm Kathleen barrels across Ireland, it leaves a trail of destruction in its wake, with the southern counties of Kerry, Cork, and Waterford bearing the brunt of its fury.

Forecasters predict that the storm will bring very strong and gusty southerly winds to all areas, reaching their peak during the morning and afternoon. However, it’s the coastal regions of Kerry, Cork, and Waterford that are expected to experience severe and damaging gusts, posing significant risks to property and infrastructure.

One of the primary concerns accompanying the storm is coastal flooding and wave overtopping. With the combination of powerful winds and high tides, coastal areas are at heightened risk of inundation, potentially leading to property damage and endangering coastal communities.

Moreover, Storm Kathleen will unleash frequent showers across Munster, exacerbating the already precarious situation. These showers are forecasted to move northeast throughout the morning and afternoon, further compounding the challenges faced by residents and emergency responders.

Despite the tumultuous weather conditions, there is a glimmer of hope as the day progresses. By evening, the showers are expected to become isolated, providing a brief respite from the relentless onslaught of the storm.

However, it’s crucial for residents in the affected areas to remain vigilant and heed any warnings or advisories issued by local authorities. Preparedness and safety measures should be prioritized to mitigate the potential risks associated with Storm Kathleen.

With highest temperatures ranging from 12 to 15 degrees, the storm’s impact is further underscored by the unrelenting force of nature juxtaposed against the relatively mild temperatures.
