STORM DESMOND MAY have been and gone, but the after-effects of last weekend’s storm are still very much present.

Yesterday, the National Emergency Coordination Centre described how the flooding expected in the coming days in the Shannon catchment area will be a once-in-20-years event.

This is resulting from the river’s huge catchment slowly absorbing the extraordinarily heavy rainfall that was seen over last weekend.

A series of videos taken from the Air Corps helicopter detail just how much damage the storm has done, with much of the mid-west of the country resembling a giant lake.
