Orange weather warning in place for Kerry today

We’re being warned to batten down the hatches as storm Ewan crosses over Kerry Today.

Met Éireann says it could bring winds of 120 kilometres per hour with it.

An orange weather warning is in place until 3pm today for the county along with the south and south east of Ireland.

It comes just days after Storm Doris knocked out power for several thousand homes across the country.

Kerry County Council is advising motorists and members of the public to take care and precautions  today.

There are reports of surface water on roads across the county with the Gap of Dunloe particularly affected.

Home and business owners should take precautions in relation to vulnerable property and motorists, cyclists and pedestrians should watch out for fallen and flying debris on roads.
