Manx Care urges people to consider Storm Agnes when making plans for today

Wed, 27 Sep 2023

Manx Care is advising the public to consider the forecasted weather when making plans for today (September 27).

This is due to the yellow weather warning in place, with the possibility of escalation to Amber; which indicates an increased likelihood of disruptions, including travel delays, road closures, power cuts, and potential damage to property.

It said: “We would like to inform you that, at present, Manx Care services are intended to operate as usual. However, given the forecast, we urge everyone to exercise the utmost caution and take great care.

“Please consider whether attending the Emergency Department is necessary at this time, or whether waiting until conditions are safer to get the support you need is feasible. However, anyone who requires urgent or emergency treatment at the Emergency Department will receive it, and you should continue to seek treatment there as required.”
