ORANGE WARNING – Be Prepared

An ORANGE level warning is issued by Met Éireann for wind speeds with the capacity to produce dangerous, stormy conditions which may constitute a risk to life and property.

  • Stay away from exposed coastal areas for the period of the ORANGE warning.
  • Drive to anticipate strong cross winds and other hazards such as falling/fallen trees. High sided vehicles and motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to strong winds – slow down and give extra space to pedestrians and cyclists.
  • Be aware of local conditions in your area; wind strengths can vary significantly from place to place (depending on direction and local topography).
