Eunice made landfall first in southwest Ireland this morning, with winds of around 80mph and heavy rain and snow. The storm caused high waves on the coast and immediately put pressure on the power grid.
according to Irish public broadcaster RTE About 80,000 homes and businesses were left without electricity. Irish network operator ESB said most homes and businesses should be back in power by evening, but some may have to wait until tomorrow morning.
There were trees or were lying on the road in different places and buildings were damaged here and there. The fire brigade was present or was in various places to clear the blocked roads as quickly as possible. In Wexford, Eastern Ireland, a man died after falling under a tree.
In different parts of the country, a red or orange code was in effect, but these warnings have since been withdrawn. Across the country, the yellow code is still in effect for snow and sleet, which can lead to hazardous conditions on the road. This is until ten o’clock tomorrow morning. Several domestic and international flights have been cancelled. Rail traffic has now resumed throughout Ireland.
