According to RTE, on Tuesday at Fastnet Lighthouse on the south coast, gusts of winds reached speeds of up to 159 km / h.
In Ireland, almost 60,000 Homes were de-energized and schools were closed in 12 counties. In contrast, in the Northeast of Scotland alone, the storm took 1,700 homes out of power. Schools have also been closed and there have been numerous transport delays. There were restrictions on bridges across Scotland, according to the BBC. The Dornoch, Skye and Erskine bridges were closed to high-sided vehicles. The Forth road bridge, on the other hand, was closed to double-decker buses, and only passenger cars and double-decker buses could use the Tay Bridge.
