Salthill floods on 26.01.2016

Good morning Galway! This was taken overlooking the prom and Salthill car park at 6.40am this morning. Don't make unnecessary journeys! Don't swim in the sea! Teresa Mannion, we need you for another spectacular weather report! I feel sorry for those poor souls who parked here because let's face it - the weather warning came quite late last night and it was only a status yellow... News reports this morning said the west was bracing itself for gales and floods - wake up guys! It's already here!

Watch This Galway Car Park Getting Seriously Flooded This Morning

The storms are back...

It had been a quiet couple of weeks, sucking us into a false sense of security here in Ireland. 

This morning, though, Ireland has been taking a batter from the latest storm to sweep in over the Atlantic (this is the tail-end of the snow that hit the East Coast of America at the weekend).

You have to feel for the poor folks who left their cars there. They might be gone by now...
