Hurricane Ophelia is wreaking havoc across the country as more than 360,000 homes and businesses are currently without power.
Terrifying footage sent into Independent.ie shows a tree nearly uprooting close to a housing estate in Carrigaline, Co Cork as violent gusts batter the Rebel county.
Gusts of up to 190km/h have been recorded in Cork according to Met Éireann.
Fallen trees are causing chaos on roads across the country.
A tree fell on a passing car on the Tower Road in Blarney earlier this morning, while a crane has blown down on the Little Island slip road from the N25 in Cork also.
Met Éireann's latest statement says there is a "danger to life and property".
"Violent and destructive gusts of 120 to 150 km/h are forecast country wide. Most severe conditions over Munster and south Leinster at the moment."
