Derry public urged to stay safe as high winds and heavy showers continue
19 Sept 2018
A local councillor has urged people to take all necessary precautions as the stormy weather continues. Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Campbell has advised the Derry public to heed the current amber weather warning issued by the Met Office. It comes after trees and hoardings and roof tiles have blown down across the city. "I would urge caution as driving conditions will be dangerous at times and rail, air and ferry services may be affected. There is also the possibility of longer journey times and cancellations are possible," he said. “All road users should take extra care of loose debris and be mindful that tree falls and some structural damage are possible. “Power cuts may occur, and I would advise members of the public to report any damage to poles or electricity lines immediately and to stay clear. “People should keep informed about the weather and act to protect yourself and your home from the effects of flooding and high winds, and importantly to heed safety warnings.”
