Severe Weather Warning


(Photo: © chris is' photostream)
The Met Office have issued a 'severe weather warning' for N Ireland. BBC News reports minor flooding in Newry and Lurgan (but it's passable with care). Should we be worried after the recent flooding in Dublin, that saw thousands of Armagh GAA fans unable to return home, stranded in hotels across Dublin, and also 10,000 Scouting Ireland members evacuated from Punchestown by the Civil Defence? I don't think we're going to see any scenes from The Day After Tomorrow, but major flooding in Belfast isn't unthinkable. It's happened in previous years along the Ormeau Road and Ravenhill, so get your sand bags out!
