Ophelia, (not the character in Shakespeare’s Hamlet), visited Ireland today. Below some images of how she left Salthill mid-way through her visit. Lots of water with flooding on Rockbarton Road in front of Leisureland, in Salthill and Toft Park car parks and in front of the Aquarium. Fortunately this time all the cars had been removed before the flood waters arrived. The ESB had to deal with fallen trees in Rockbarton and some debris was scattered along the Prom.
Businesses are closed and the road along the Prom is closed. Most people are heeding the safety warnings from the authorities but a thumbs down to those trill seekers who could put the lives of emergency personnel at risk as well as their own if they get into trouble in the sea.
