Status Orange Met Eireann National Emergency group to meet over Storm Callum impact

Storm Callum battered Exmouth seafront.

Several flights have been cancelled out of Dublin and Belfast due to the storm.

In Co Antrim, there is disruption on the Cushendall Road, Ballycastle due to a fallen tree, the Mill Road, Crumlin for the same reason, and on the Galgorm Road, Ballymena.

ESB Networks has apologised to customers who have lost power supply this morning.

Cheshire Police said it had received "quite a few" weather-related calls on Friday morning, while Isle of Man Police warned motorists of windy and rainy conditions causing issues on the roads.

Arriva said only very limited replacement buses will be available and advised people to check the latest advice before travelling. Police are advising drivers to take care on the roads and exercise caution.

There are now five weather warnings in place as the storm apporaches, including four status orange warnings and a status yellow warning.

The Google Pixel 2 started at a price of around Rs 61,000 and the Pixel 3 is expected to be slightly higher than its predecessor. The report additionally noticed some Black areas on the back of the Pixel Slate and they could be for cellular connectivity.

Strong winds and torrential rain have prompted the latest Met Office warnings of flooding and travel disruption, with Storm Callum expected to particularly impact western parts of the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Although the strongest winds are likely in western Ireland, North Western parts of the United Kingdom can also expect severe gales.

The high winds, combined with heavy rain, could see leaves and twigs blocking drains, making flooding more likely, meteorologist Sarah Kent said.

Northern Ireland's Health and Safety Executive issued guidance to businesses which could be affected by the storm. Either way Storm Callum is coming and has the potential to cause damage ( though mostly in the west of the country).

There was also bad news for commuters in south Wales, with Arriva cancelling a number of train services for the morning due to the high winds and heavy rain.

Rain is also expected from 7am on Saturday until 8pm the same day.
