Cork City Council’s Severe Weather Alert Team met this morning (Sunday) to review operations in light of the red light weather alert which could cause severe winds and storm in the city tomorrow (Monday).
A statement from City Hall reassured that Cork City Council emergency crews are on standby, and the Crisis Management Team is due to meet again this afternoon.
Cork City Hall is advising citizens to “remain vigilant and to keep themselves updated in regard to the evolving weather situation”.
Current weather predictions indicate that Morrisons Island and South Terrace are the areas of the city most likely to be affected by any flooding on Monday afternoon. Those are the typical low lying areas which bear the brunt of annual flooding.
