Status Orange weather warning for Galway to remain in place until 5pm

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Met Eireann has extended the status orange weather warning for Galway until 5 this evening.
It’s warning southeast winds veering southwest will gust generally between 100 and 130km/h, higher in some coastal areas and on high ground.
Along with a spell of heavy rain and high tides there’s also a risk of coastal flooding and damage.
