Storm alert as councils batten down the hatches

HOMEOWNERS and businesses are on high alert this weekend as storm-force winds and high tides are expected to cause flooding chaos across the State.

Our picture shows workers from Dublin City Council clearing storm drains along the Clontarf Road after large bags of sand were put in place.
