Storm Ophelia Alert

Storm Ophelia Alert

As Storm Ophelia  continues to dissipate, Wexford County Council Emergency Management Committee met again this evening at 6pm to review the situation across the county.
 
All of the council’s emergency crews have now been mobilised and are engaged in clearing fallen trees, with priority tonight being given to the county’s national and regional road network. By midnight tonight we expect the majority of road blockages to be cleared from these roads.
 
Operations will resume again at first light and by close of business tomorrow we the majority of Wexford’s road network to be fully operational.
 
With widespread power cuts, a number of treatment plants, boreholes and pump stations have suffered loss of electricity, resulting in water supply reductions to some parts of the county. Customers across the county are advised to moderate their water usage in the interest of conserving supply, while Wexford County Council and ESB Networks work to restore electricity to these plants.
 
Throughout the remainder of this evening and tonight, it is vitally important that the public continue to act responsibly in relation to travel, and only make journeys where absolutely necessary. Hundreds of hazards remain on road network and in towns and villages all over County Wexford this evening.  Hazards include fallen trees, downed wires, loose slates, damaged signage, windblown debris etc, and in the darkness these hazards will significantly increase in magnitude and risk.
 
Finally Wexford County Council wishes to advise the public this evening that all emergency calls to Wexford County Council should be made to our Out of Hours Emergency Number:             1890 666 777
 
Please remain indoors, do not take risks, stay safe. 10 2017
