Kerry County Council’s Severe Weather Assessment Team is coordinating preparations for the weather warning in place from 7pm tonight (Monday) to 9pm tomorrow (Tuesday).

 

Very heavy rain is expected from tonight and tomorrow which will likely cause further river flooding and surface water flooding. Rainfall totals of 50 to 80mm, higher in mountainous regions.

Crews have been mobilised to coordinate the response in each part of the county.

Rainfall levels are expected to be high particularly in mid-Kerry and south Kerry, but all parts of the county will be affected by significant rainfall amounts tonight and throughout Tuesday.

Property owners who have experienced flooding in the past are being contacted directly by the Council and sandbags are being made available through Local Area Offices.

Road users are asked to exercise caution for the duration of the weather alert with localised flooding and surface water expected on routes throughout the county.

Kerry County Council’s severe weather emergency phoneline will be available outside of office hours and is available on 066 7183588.

Updates will be provided on the Council’s social media platforms and website, kerrycoco.ie.
