While Ireland is one of the most beautiful countries on the planet to travel to, you are better off avoiding it today. Authorities in Ireland have warned its people against non-essential travel on Monday, the 16th of October as the country is under the threat of its worst storm in the last 50 years. Ophelia, the sixth major hurricane of the Atlantic season, is expected to make landfall in Ireland at 0500 GMT today. Armed forces were dispatched on Sunday, October 15 to make sure all necessary efforts were diverted towards defense against floods. The storm is expected to hit the southwest coast of Ireland. This hurricane is being described as unprecedented which means it could lead to unexpected losses. As a result, the country is preparing in the best way possible to take the blow when it comes.

The weather service has declared a Status Red weather alert and said that the hurricane force winds are expected to ease before they reach the coastline. They have released a warning saying that some gusts may exceed 130 kilometers per hour. Such wind speeds are enough to cause severe hassles. The government has also warned of localized coastal flooding which will very likely lead to disruption in transport and electricity services. You should not be out in this storm … this is an extreme weather event, the chairman of Ireland’s National Emergency Coordination Group Sean Hogan said at a briefing. He also said that Ophelia may become a life-threatening event like the Hurricane Debbie in 1961 which claimed 12 lives.
