I see. So not so much ground floor as cliff edge?

I can imagine that's either awe-inspiring or terrifying in bad weather.

I have a friend who lives in a sea facing flat on Brighton Marina, and he gets to see some awesome views of bad weather.

Status Yellow - Rainfall warning for Ireland

Spells of heavy rain (in excess of 50mm in parts of the west and northwest) will result in some flooding.
Valid: Thursday 03 October 2019 09:00 to Friday 04 October 2019 09:00



Weather Advisory for Ireland

The effects of Storm Lorenzo will begin to be felt across Ireland from Thursday morning, easing Friday morning. The main impacts will include disruptive winds, falling trees and flooding.

In early October, trees are mostly in full leaf with a large surface area, so even moderate strength winds can bring down weakened trees and/or tree limbs. In addition, some trees may be compromised due to saturated soils at the moment, and with more rain forecast with Storm Lorenzo some disruption due to falling trees/branches is likely. Heavy rain, coupled with falling leaves may block drains and gullies, leading to surface flooding.

Coastal:
Storm Lorenzo will produce significant swell, high waves and sizeable storm surges. This will lead to wave overtopping, some coastal flooding and damage, especially along western and southern coasts.

Surface Flooding:
Saturated soils and the expected heavy/thundery rainfall may lead to surface flooding.

River:
River levels are currently elevated across the country and the rainfall may lead to river flooding, especially in parts of the midlands and west. River levels will continue to rise after Storm Lorenzo has passed.
Valid: Thursday 03 October 2019 09:00 to Friday 04 October 2019 09:00

There was a lightening strike during the night which must have detonated very close since the thunder was pretty much simultaneous. Very bright and loud it was.

Just about to go out and batten down the hatches for this evening's onslaught.

I didn't see or hear any thunder or lightening, windy here since last night but dry so far today.

Prepped for it here, batteries etc charged. Sounds like it'll be rougher for you, especially as Kerry has now been upgraded to red but hopefully they won't be too much damage.

The village is protected somewhat by a ridge but I think it'll be gusty all right. Peak is expected at around 6pm. It's been strange weather so far today. One moment it's sunny and calm, next it's bucketing down. Just had a hail storm. Lots of nice rainbows.

Lights dimmed here a couple times about 15 mins ago, hopefully I don't need to get out the generator.

A thump heard by the side of the house was next door's fence panel hitting our fuel bunker, which has moved several feet. Power just came back.

It has hardly stopped raining here all day, lots of surface water on the roads.
It's getting fairly windy now.

Hopefully we will never get a Ronan ;)
