Storm Brian likely to impact ESB works

Storm Brian likely to impact ESB works

Storm Brian – Friday 20 October, 5pm  

Wexford County Council wishes to reassure the public that all preparations are in place to deal with any adverse effects that may arise as a result of Storm Brian.  

We have been in contact with National Emergency Coordination Group on Severe Weather and we will continue to monitor the progress of the storm and its path across the country tonight.   Giving wind strengths and timing, it would appear at this time that Storm Brian does not present exceptional public safety issues.  

However, the storm is likely to impact on ESB work and may increase the current number of customers without power upwards again. Crews will almost certainly be stood down from work as the storm passes.   Throughout the remainder of this evening and tonight, it is vitally important that the public continue to act responsibly and remain extremely vigilant when outdoors or when travelling.   Given the possibility that roadside trees and hedges, roof tiles, slates, etc may have been weakened or dislodged as a result of Storm Ophelia, we remind the public of the continued dangers these may pose over the coming hours and days.   Stay away from coastal areas - these are likely to pose an increased risk as a result of the storm.
