Limerick taken off Tornado watch

As a band of extreme weather moves across Limerick and the entire country, the Met office has issued a severe weather warning today saying that stormy conditions are expected in the Limerick area as well as across the country.

From the Met office,
The Munster Area:
Becoming extremely windy or stormy today, with gale force southwest to west winds, gusting up to 130 km per hour. Heavy or prolonged showers also, with a risk of thunder.

A Tornado Watch which was issued by Torro at 2020GMT on Saturday for parts of Southern Ireland which include right here in Limerick has been discontinued.
