Storm Callum has caused a mudslide on a main road in Cork this morning.

The mudslide occurred at Carrigaloe at the bottom of Donegal Hill.

Images online from public representative, Ken Curtain, show the Cobh to Fota road partially blocked by mud.

According to Mr. Curtin, the traffic is still flowing through one lane.

"One lane is currently blocked but traffic is getting by where mudslide happened at Carrigaloe at bottom of Donegal."

Storm Callum swept through the country last night with gusts of up to 152km/h recorded at Fastnet Lighthouse off the coast of Co Cork.

Over 50 mm of rain is due in Cork from today up to early Sunday morning.

30-40 mm is expected in the southeast and north of the country. Slightly less is expected in most of the west and Midlands.

The eye of Storm Callum may have passed during the night, but we'll be feeling the effects for a while yet, guys. Stay safe.
