URGENT NOTICE: GARDAÍ IN ROADS WARNING

first_imgGARDAÍ have issued an urgent warning to motorists in Co Donegal tonight.Torrential driving rain and high winds are making driving particularly difficult.It will be the early hours of the morning before the worst of the weather has cleared. Many roads are flooded across the county, with driving conditions particularly difficult on rural roads.There are also reports of trees and branches down in several areas.A local Donegal Garda spokesman told Donegal Daily: “Road conditions are extremely poor at the moment.“We have patrols out across the county tonight but this is not a night to be driving anywhere near the normal speed limits. “People need to slow right down and take their time, especially on rural country roads; a fallen tree could be around the next corner and roads will be very slippy with the rain and this will extend normal braking distances.”Gardaí say patrols are on the Barnesmore Gap where there are very high winds.Drivers of high-sided vehicles are asked not to take to the roads over the next few hours. URGENT NOTICE: GARDAÍ IN ROADS WARNING was last modified: October 18th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegal weather warningrainstorm warningweatherlast_img
