Taoiseach Leo Varadkar today spoke about Hurricane Ophelia, offering the public advice about the incoming stormy weather.

An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, today made a public announcement, ahead of the incoming Hurricane Ophelia.

“The last time we had a storm this severe, eleven lives were lost.”, the Taoiseach said.

He said the main priority of preparations for the storm is to avoid injuries and losses of life.

"It is our priority to avoid any injuries and any losses of life”, he added.

The Taoiseach issued four pieces of advice for the public when dealing with the storm:

  1. He warned people to stay indoors if at all possible during the height of the storm.
  2. He also advised people to check in on their elderly neighbours and relatives, as well as those living alone.
  3. An Taoiseach then commented that the storm and status red weather warnings apply to all counties and advised that if it hasn’t hit your area yet, be warned that it won’t be far away.
  4. He gave one final piece of advice, telling the public to be aware of the dangers after the storm passes, with many trees and powerlines expected to fall and widespread structural damage predicted.
An Taoiseach concluded by commending the work already being carried out across the country, by Emergency services, the ESB and the Defense Forces, which he says are on standby.
