Water restrictions may endanger public safety at busy time for fire brigade

first_imgA DUBLIN COUNCILLOR has said water restrictions in Dublin “may endanger public safety” as Dublin Fire Brigade gears up to deal with one of its busiest nights of the years tomorrow.Water supplies in the four Dublin Local Authority areas were shut off at 8pm tonight until 7am tomorrow morning with Dublin City Council saying today the restrictions will be in place until next Monday and possibly beyond that.Dublin councillor Cormac Devlin said today he was concerned that “public safety could be put at risk as a consequence of these sweeping water restrictions” during the Halloween period.One Dublin Fire Brigade source said it was “unfortunate the council decided to do this during our busiest time”.“It might cause a problem for us,” they said. “We”ll be able to handle small fires but if it’s something more substantial we might have to draw water from an open source like a river or a small lake.”As a contingency, the fire brigade has two large water tankers with a combined capacity of over 37,000 litres that will be available tomorrow night.However Dublin councillor Devlin called on the council to immediately suspend restrictions over the Halloween period.Related: Restaurants, hotels and pubs wait to find out effects of water restrictions>Read: Council issues water-saving tips ahead of Dublin night restrictions>last_img read more

Falling debris veering vehicles and aquaplaning all hazards as storm approaches

first_imgSTORM GUSTS OF up to 130 km/h are expected from an Atlantic storm that is scheduled to hit Ireland tonight and the Road Safety Authority (RSA) is urging motorists be vigilant.The storm will be strongest in the Atlantic counties and is predicted to move northwest tonight and into tomorrow with southwest winds gusting 100 to 130 km/h. Frequent heavy showers are also expected with sleet and snow also possible on higher ground.With road conditions becoming potentially hazardous, the RSA is advising motorists about a number of extra precautions they should take while driving.A 23-year-old woman died last month when a tree fell on the car she was driving during severe weather and so far in total there have been 14 fatalities on the roads in 2014. A decrease on the 18 people who died in January 2013.In particular, drivers are being told to watch out for falling debris or objects being blown out onto the road as well as vehicles veering to the side.During heavy rainfall drivers should also ensure that they allow extra time to stop suddenly and make sure that they are at least four seconds behind the driver in front.While driving on roads where speed limits are above 100 km/h the risk of losing control due to aquaplaning is also increased.Very high tides have also been predicted this weekend and flood warnings have been issued in a number of counties.Tom Tiernan of Clare County Council explains that heavy rainfall, strong gale to storm force winds, a large sea swell and a spring tide are all combining to lead to a possible repeat of the flooding earlier this month:There is a serious risk countywide of both coastal and inland flooding and all areas which have flooded in the past could be seriously impacted. Conditions could be similar in nature and extent to the storm events of early January with the potential for structural damage.Tiernan added that river levels remain “very high” and arrangements have been put in place to continuously monitor the situation.Read: Orange Alert: Wind, snow and “extremely high waves” this weekend as another storm hits >Read: Battered: Your pictures of how the storm took its toll >last_img read more
