Kerry County Council’s Weather Assessment Team met this morning and has issued the following advice and information:

·         People are asked to exercise caution in coastal areas in particular where wind speeds are expected to be highest

·         Motorists and road users should exercise caution particularly as trees and branches may have become loosened during last Monday’s storm and may be still be vulnerable to high winds

·         Sandbags are in place since last Monday’s weather event and will be deployed if necessary though very high volumes of rainfall are not anticipated

·         Kerry County Council’s emergency line is available at 066 7183588 in the event that anyone is in difficulty and requires assistance over the weekend

The Council will provide updates and further information on its social media channels, through the local media and on its alerts website
