The Councils Severe Weather Alert Team has been convened and will be monitoring the progress of the effects of the storm in the County.

We would ask everybody to heed the warnings of the emergency services and coastguard and stay away from harbours, beaches, headlands and any exposed areas along our coastline and in our upland areas. All road users are advised to proceed with caution due to expected high winds and heavy rain.
