Kerry County Council’s Severe Weather Assessment Team met today to review the warning and has advised members of the public, motorists and property owners to be prepared for high winds overnight and tomorrow morning in particular.
Extreme care should be taken during the morning work and school commute and particularly in coastal areas and higher ground owing to high winds. All motorists should drive with extreme care, allow extra time for journeys and watch out for fallen branches and debris on roads. There may also be a risk of fallen trees.
Property owners and businesses should take all reasonable precautions to secure any loose items of furniture, hoardings and signage, particularly after the prolonged period of fine weather over the summer months.
Kerry County Council will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates through the media and on its social media channels.
