Storm Agnes: Multiple warnings in force as Storm Agnes approaches the coast in Northern Ireland

There are alerts about bad weather in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland because Storm Agnes has arrived on the island.

The storm, the first named storm of the season, is expected to bring powerful and disruptive winds until Thursday morning.

It came to Northern Ireland around lunchtime.

About 1,000 people in Poyntzpass, County Armagh, don’t have electricity because of the bad weather.

The Met Office and Met Éireann have said that there might be problems with travel.

The Republic of Ireland has been most affected by the storm. Strong winds caused many trees to fall in Cork and Dublin.

In the seaside town of Youghal, County Cork, a building on Front Strand lost part of its roof due to strong winds.
The Cork Council said the road was closed and the gardai and the fire service were keeping an eye on the situation.

The weather agency Met Éireann has prolonged its orange wind warning for specific counties in Ireland. The warning will be in effect until 7:00 PM on Wednesday. The counties affected are Cork, Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford, Wicklow, Kerry, Tipperary, and Waterford.

There is a weather warning for rain in Cork, Carlow, Dublin, Kilkenny, Wexford, Wicklow Kerry and Waterford until midnight. There is also a warning for wind in Leinster, Munster, and Galway during the same time.

There is flooding in certain areas of Cork. The Cork County Council is telling drivers to stay away from driving through flooded areas.

Many flights at Belfast City Airport were canceled on Wednesday afternoon and there were issues with P&O Ferries on their route between Larne and Cairnryan in Scotland. The boats leaving at 4:00 pm were canceled, and the next one at 8:00 pm might be late.
In Northern Ireland, there is a warning for rain until 8:00 PM, and a warning for wind until 7:00 AM on Thursday.

The weather forecaster called the Met Office said that in certain areas, it might rain a lot, with up to 30mm (1. 2in) of rain falling in just a few hours. In the Mournes and Sperrins, there may even be up to 50mm of rain.

This could make the chances of flooding higher because the storm is moving towards the north and east.

The strongest wind in Northern Ireland was 57mph at Glenanne in County Armagh.

In Ireland, very strong winds of 72mph (116kmph) were measured on Sherkin Island in west Cork.

There has been a lot of rain today, with some places getting 20-25mm.
The rain warning for Northern Ireland will end at 8:00 PM. There will be heavy showers with thunder in the evening, but they will decrease before midnight.

The rest of the night won’t have much rain.

The strong winds will calm down for a while tonight, and the wind will start blowing from the south west.

Expect the wind to get stronger again and stay strong throughout the night.

However, the stronger winds will be moving towards the western counties and areas that are exposed to the coast and hills. These winds will not be as strong as they were earlier on Wednesday, around 40 to 45 miles per hour.
