Met Office updates yellow weather warning as Storm Callum approaches

Rail services to Drogheda, Dundalk and Belfast have been suspended because of a tree on the line at Donabate in Dublin. Either way Storm Callum is coming and has the potential to cause damage ( though mostly in the west of the country).

On Friday morning Walsh's Hotel in Maghera posted a video of water pouring through the roof and into a hallway.

"We are very sorry for the disappointment and inconvenience caused to everyone that was looking forward to the festival". Spray and flooding is also likely to lead to hard driving conditions and some road closures.

Paul Hand of ESB Networks said 30,000 homes and business were without power, but he anticipated this figure increasing as the storm moves north.

There are now no reports of power outages or trees down in Laois.

Parts of southern Scotland are set for more dismal weather throughout the rest of today and tomorrow, with persistent heavy rain forecast.

Winds of up to 60 miles per hour are also expected to hit Pembrokeshire, which combined with high tides could lead to some coastal impact due to large waves.

Strong winds could potentially bring down leaves and branches, increasing the likelihood of flooding due to blocked drains or culverts.

Northern Ireland's Health and Safety Executive issued guidance to businesses which could be affected by the storm. Expect the unexpected. Watch out for falling/fallen debris on the road and vehicles veering across the road.

Met Éireann are keeping the Orange Status Wind Warning in place for Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Sligo and Clare until 5pm on Friday evening, while the rest of the country will be taken off the orange status as of 9am on Friday morning.

The storm is wreaking havoc on travel arrangements, with certain flights being canceled on Friday morning at Cardiff and Exeter airports.
