Carlow County Council directed to prepare for potential arrival of Hurricane Lorenzo

Ocean waves

This will make it the first hurricane to track through the mid-Atlantic archipelago since 2012.

Over the weekend Lorenzo - the strongest storm ever recorded so far north and east in the Atlantic, according to the US National Hurricane Center (NHC) - strengthened to a Category 5, smashing several records along the way.

Severe weather conditions are not uncommon in the exposed island chain.

The hurricane is expected to transition to that of an extra tropical storm as it charts towards Ireland. But hurricanes usually wind down by the time they reach the area's cooler waters.

"Given the uncertainty associated with the track and evolution of Hurricane Lorenzo we have requested all Departments to have staff on standby who are available to attend NECG at short notice", said Mr Murphy.

Flu is in the air: the importance of the flu shot
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone ages 6 months and older receive an annual flu vaccination. Duke's main goal is to create better vaccines that cover more strains of the flu and will prove better long term immunity .

On Monday, weather experts were reluctant to definitively say whether Lorenzo was moving towards the North of Ireland or not.

The Azores regional government sent crews out to clear drainage systems during calm daytime weather Tuesday and told residents to prepare their homes.

The Portuguese weather agency expects Lorenzo to weaken to a Category 1 hurricane on Wednesday as it heads northeast.

Met Éireann has also been working with the US National Hurricane Centre, the European Union and the UK Met Offices.

Met Éireann's high resolution forecast model, HARMONIE, which forecasts two days in advance, will give the office more detailed guidance as Lorenzo approaches and warnings will be issued early Wednesday, the forecaster announced this afternoon.
