Severe gales, flooding expected as Storm Eleanor hits IoM

Tue, 02 Jan 2018

Two weather warning will be in force on the Island this evening as the effects of Storm Eleanor hit.

An amber warning will be in place from 9pm until 2pm tomorrow as severe gales, harbour flooring and coastal overtopping are expected.

The Met Office at Ronaldsway expects large waves to come over sea walls around high tide shortly before midnight, particularly around Peel.

A yellow warning has also been issued for 5pm to 10pm with heavy rain due, resulting in a risk of localised flooding.

The Department of Infrastructure warns the conditions will result in standing water on many of the Island's roads - police are urging motorists to be aware of the conditions and drive carefully.
