Met Éireann have extended their weather warning and issued advice for road users

Be careful out there...

Storm Eleanor hit Ireland on Tuesday causing major flooding in some areas with Galway and other parts of the west particularly affected.

An status orange weather alert was issued yesterday and was originally due to be in effect until 10pm on Tuesday, but Met Éireann have extended that warning until 2pm on Wednesday.

The orange wind warning is in effect for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Limerick.

They've warned that westerly gale to storm force winds together with high tides and exceptionally high seas will result in coastal damage and flooding. There's also a likelihood of damaging gusts of wind inland as well.

There's also a status yellow wind warning in place for Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan, Roscommon, Tipperary and Waterford until 2pm on Wednesday.

The Met Office have also issued an amber warning for the north of Ireland warning of gusts of between 80-90mph.

Met Éireann have warned road users to be vigilant as poor weather has made driving conditions hazardous.

They said: 'We are asking road users to remain vigilant with respect to the possibility of flooding and debris this morning. Stay up to date with local authority and national warnings and assess your surroundings prior to departure on any journeys while storm conditions pass through.'

Be safe out there, folks.
