Home / Observatory / Weather / Video: Hurricane Ophelia Cuased Some Searious Damage


Three people have died since hurricane Ophelia started causing damage and destruction across Ireland, and almost 300,000 properties around the country have been left without electricity. 

Some 20,000 households are also without water in the country, and it is expected to take days for electricity to be restored. The country continues to assess the damage and destruction that has been left behind by the worst storm to hit Ireland in 50 years.

Strong winds of up to 70mph (112km/h) wreaked havoc in Cumbria on Monday night, damaging the roof of Barrow AFC's stadium and forcing police to close roads in the town.

Cumbria Police said they had reports of roofs and debris on the roads and overhead cables coming down, you can see some of the most dramatic images in the gallery above, also have a look at the dramatic footage of an aeroplane attempting to land at the Dublin Airport during the Ophelia storm:
