A nationwide flood advisory has been issued by Met Éireann until Thursday night.

As Storm Ciarán makes its way to Irish shores, the public is being warned of heavy rain and strong winds.

River levels are still high after Storm Babet, and land is waterlogged. This will only worsen when Ciarán arrives.

Worst Affected Areas

Despite this being a nationwide warning, there will be a few areas hit harder than others.

The south and east of the country are due to get a battering. So, get your wellies ready if you're in Munster or Leinster!

Met Éireann has also issued a status yellow rainfall warning for Co Kerry. The warning will come into place on Tuesday at 12pm and will last 24 hours.

Political Reaction

Following the devastating flooding faced by the people of Cork after Storm Babet, Sinn Féin are calling for a food warning scheme to be introduced.

The party's Climate spokesperson Darren O'Rourke says the government needs to be more proactive:

"I absolutely feel that there's more that can be done and should be done in advance of
these increasingly significant weather events and there should be no delays in
allocating payments.
As has often been the case in the past,
we need a AAA comprehensive support package there for people affected."
