Storm waves crashing against a harbour wall

Storm Brian

Shortly after ex-Hurricane Ophelia, an area of low pressure began to rapidly intensify across the Atlantic and yellow and orange wind warnings were issues leading to Met Éireann naming the storm.
Storm Brian brought strong gusts across the UK coinciding with highs tides.  Impacts were most significant in Ireland and Wales with flash flooding in a number of Irish cities, while in Wales a number of seafront roads were closed and many ferries and trains cancelled.
