Storm Emma Red Alert Extended Until Tomorrow In Ireland


The ongoing Red Alert warning for Storm Emma has been extended until tomorrow morning.

According to the Irish Independent, the warning applies to Dublin, Kildare, Wexford, Wicklow and Meath.

Britain has been battered around the last few days thanks to the Beast from the East and Storm Emma.

But if you think what we’ve been through already is bad enough, then it’s nothing compared to what’s coming up over the next few hours.

The coming weather is going to be so bad that some train companies are urging people to try and get home by 3pm, otherwise they’ll be at risk of not being able to get home, according to the Express.

The Met Office have warned that they are expecting 80mph winds as well as four inches of snow per day on Saturday and Sunday.

A red ‘severe weather’ warning was issued two days ago to the UK as Storm Emma arrived, and she’s caused chaos ever since.

This is only the second red warning for snow ever issued by the Met Office with the first being given to Wales in January 2013.


They said:

Red means you should take action now to keep yourself and others safe from the impact of the weather.

Widespread damage, travel and power disruption and risk to life is likely. You must avoid dangerous areas and follow the advice of the emergency services and local authorities.

Take care of yourselves out there!
