Police urge Manx public to avoid coasts during storm

Fri, 23 Dec 2016

The Manx public is being advised to avoid the coasts and only travel if necessary during today's storms.

An amber weather warning has been issued by the Isle of Man Met Office as Storm Barbara moves in from the Atlantic.

The police are urging anyone who has to go outside during the storm to steer clear of the coasts, where it's expected water and debris will come over sea walls.

Officers also say they will post updates on road closures, fallen trees and any other disruption on their social media pages.

The worst of the weather is expected to hit between 9am and 3pm.
