Thanks, Bertha: Weather warning remains for Leinster as tail-end of hurricane passes over

It will remain in place until 3pm. And then we can all go to the beach, yeah?

A NEW MET Éireann weather warning has been issued as the tail-end of Hurricane Bertha batters the east of the country.

A Status Yellow warning was in place last night for parts of Leinster and Munster.

This has been lifted for the southern part of the country, but will remain in place for Leinster, Cavan, and Monaghan as the heavy pours move north over the country.

A total of 25 to 50mm of rain, including what fell overnight, is expected.

It has already been a fairly miserable start to the day, with floods reported in some places.

And if the video above from Geoff Walsh in Howth this morning at 6.30am is anything to go by, we could hear a lot more about floods as the day progresses. Flooding was reported in Limerick yesterday.

England is facing even worse weather.

Coastal gales of up to 90kph are expected. Red Cross volunteers have been put on stand-by, Sky News reports.
