Met Éireann Issues Orange Weather Warning As Storm Hector Approches

James Fenton

We’re more used to seeing Hector bouncing around ag caint Gaeilge but this latest version looks altogether more sinister.

Met Éireann has this morning issued a status orange weather warning as Storm Hector makes its way across the country. The wind warning will affect Donegal, Mayo, Galway and Sligo with gusts of 110 to 125 km/hr, strongest in coastal areas.

Meanwhile, Storm Hector also brings a status yellow wind warning to the counties of Cavan, Monaghan, Leitrim, Roscommon, Clare and Kerry where gusts will reach speeds of 90 to 110 km/hr.
