Road users have been warned that Storm Barra isn’t over just yet as power lines and trampolines are continuing to create risk to those commuting.
A Wicklow motorist had a very lucky escape earlier today when his car got trapped under a tree.
This isn’t the only hazardous incident that happened in Wicklow today.
An Garda Siochana also tweeted: “This Power line fell in Wicklow earlier if any of the public comes across any fallen power lines, keep well clear and assume that they are still live.”
Gardai also urged the public to avoid all unnecessary travel where Red/Orange wind warnings are in place.
Road users should pay particular attention to the risk posed by fallen trees, flying debris and flooded roads.
People are advised to stay away from coastal areas/cliff walks during this period.
