Met Éireann has issued a Status Red wind warning for Kerry with gusts over 130km/h forecast as Storm Atiyah approaches.

West to southwest winds veering northwest will reach speeds of 80km/h for a time this evening, and extreme caution is advised especially near coasts and on high ground.

The warning came into effect at 4pm and will remain in place until 7pm.

Kerry County Council has advised people to stay indoors during the Status Red warning.

It has also warned members of the public to "stay away from exposed coastal areas" while the weather alerts remain in place.

Kerry County Council said it has an emergency helpline operating during Storm Atiyah, which can be contacted on 066 718 3588, to report fallen trees, flooding or debris on roads.

A Status Orange wind warning came into effect at 1pm for counties Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork and Limerick.

The warning will remain in place until 6am tomorrow.

For a country with a mild climate and not prone to natural disasters or (actual) dangerous weather, we have a national weather service which makes a mountain out of a mole hill every time a gust of wind blows in from the Atlantic.
