After the storm, it's the deluge
THE gales are gone but now it's a deluge.
Met Eireann has issued severe weather warnings for many parts of the country as up to 100mm (four inches) of rain will fall during the coming 10 days.
The warning comes as a big clean-up operation continued in the aftermath of Ireland's worst winter storm in 15 years.
There is now a serious risk of flooding due to the amount of rainfall since December 20.
Localised flood warnings have been issued in Cork, Galway, Roscommon, Tipperary and Waterford.
Met Eireann also warned we face further heavy and possibly thundery showers over the next 24 hours.
