    National Hurricane Center announced a few minutes ago Ophelia is no longer a hurricane but a post-tropical cyclone (different name but impacts will be same as a CAT1 hurricane)

    Also worth noting that Isle of Man is expected to be impacted. Many casinos and software providers including Random Number Generator servers are located there :eek2:

    I have family in Sunderland, Dundee, Elgin and Kerry. I don't know the proximity of everyone as far as the storm goes, as I haven't spoken to them today. But I am wishing everyone nothing but safety! :)

    If its the Sunderland where I am (which I presume it is) then they will be fine :) we are forecast extremely strong winds from tomorrow lunchtime, but nothing like whats hitting Ireland at the moment

    Dundee should be fine too :)

    Ironically 30 years to the day when the big bastard of 1987 hit, the last great storm. I remember that as a teen, the walls blown over, trains cancelled etc. This won't be as bad, even for Eire. It could still go further east, but I doubt it.

    I remember it well too, I was travelling from Rochdale to Sunderland and there were loads of trains cancelled, I should have been home by about 12 that day, it was after 6 when I got in and that was lucky as I just managed to grab a train with seconds to spare, otherwise with would have been a couple of hours later. The destruction was horrendous all over the country. Michael Fish too some stick over that didn't he!

    Bebo, Elgin should be fine too, Kerry will probably get hit pretty bad, its pretty much where the storm is predicted to hit (unless its changed since yesterday)

    I live in Cork City and it's just a bit windy so far. I know there have been some power outages due to a few downed poles and trees but everything seems fine so far. Hope it continues to be kind to us and not give us too much of a battering. Stay safe everyone :)

    It's not supposed to peak until this afternoon. I just went out, my nice cleaned black Beemer is covered in bloody Saharan sand, the overcast sky has a weird orangey-yellow tint to it and when the sun pokes through it is bright red, like a sunset plus it's ridiculously muggy and warm. :thumbsup:

    This really is weird, it's like there's an eclipse, the sky has just clouded over, really dark and everything looks like you're wearing light yellow tinted glasses, never seen anything like this! I'd take a picture but don't think it'd show how yellow things really are, the tint has made other colours like the lawn look a very vivid green! :eek2:

    We'd just moved to London in 1987, August or so if I can recall. Couple of months later we had the Great Storm that I shan't forget (nor Michael Fish:oops:), followed by the King's cross fire just a month later. Quite a vivid start to life here I tell you :eek:

    Hurricane Ophelia to hit Ireland tomorrow morning..: 86109655_86109787_jm171016.JPG,Oct 16, 2017

    Also...

    "The Isle of Man Met Office has issued an amber weather warning, with severe gale force winds of 60-70mph forecast to hit the island. Gusts could reach 80mph in exposed locations at the peak of the storm between 6pm and 8pm, resulting in a risk of structural damage and fallen trees.
    Coastal overtopping is also expected around tonight’s high tide at 10.15pm, with four to six metre waves depositing large amounts of seawater and debris on seafronts around the island."

    WRT data centres (where the servers etc are located), they're generally all single-storey facilities in sheltered areas, so I'm pretty sure they'll be fine. Bigger risk will likely be to power lines, so a good test for the UPS's & back-up generators :thumbsup:

    Thanks! I just got word from Scotland, just some really heavy rain expected tonight and tomorrow your time. The last post from Kerry via facebook was yesterday my time, and that it was eerie quiet. Nothing posted since, which Im not surprised.

    It is really bad out here at the moment...
    Schools all cancelled for today and tomorrow...

    Also my wife's work and my workplace are closed for today as many other offices are closed.
    Supermarkets all closed, public transport cancelled for today, basicly everything came to a hold.

    3 people dead sofar from falling trees as far as I am aware and half a mile from where I live there was police,firetruck and ambulance.
    No idea what happened yet but we will hear soon.

    We are in the middle of it right now and am surprised we still have power and internet as 360.000 people across the country are off the powergrid,possibly for a few days...So keep my fingers crossed we will not have any power outages...

    Wind is howling,really super strong gusts as we speak...

    we had the yellow skies earlier, and then about 1pm had the thickest fog I've ever seen, you could barely see the other side of the road it was that bad.
    Then suddenly it lifted, sun beating down and was like a summers day, but about 30 mins ago we started getting really strong winds, not as strong as some places are getting though.
    Hope everyones ok in Ireland and anywhere else thats been hit.
