Mon, 16 Oct 2017

Gusts reaching up to 80mph are expected to hit the Island today causing travel disruption and potential structural damage.

The Island's Met Office has issued an amber weather warning as the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia reach the Island.

Forecasters expect the worst of the weather to fall between 3pm today and midnight tomorrow, resulting in hazardous driving conditions particularly on high and coastal roads.

Coastal overtopping is also expecting, particularly around high tide at 10pm, with Peel, Castletown prom and north Douglas prom among the areas expected to be worst hit.
