Summer Interrupted...Brace Yourself For Storm Hector

Elaine Stenson By Elaine Stenson - June 13, 2018

We may have been enjoying the warm and sunny weather over the past few weeks but Storm Hector is on its way.

Met Éireann has issued two weather warnings with gusts of up to 125km an hour expected in parts of the south and northwest.

A status orange alert will come into effect for Donegal, Galway, Mayo and Sligo at 9pm tonight.

While a status yellow wind warning has been issued for Cavan, Monaghan, Leitrim, Roscommon, Clare and Kerry.


Both alerts are in place until tomorrow at 10am.

Met Éireann says it will be wet and windy tonight with potentially damaging gusts.

I love to travel and I've lived and worked in six countries outside Ireland!

When I'm not at work, I can be found doing yoga or frequenting the pilates studio or else just grabbing an afternoon nap - since starting the 6am news shift with Nova, I have developed an obsession with getting a good night's sleep!!

I also love to cook and as you'd expect I'm a complete news junkie at heart.
