Cork County Council continuing clean up operation following Storm Barra

Cork County Council is continuing the clean up operation in the wake of Storm Barra.

The Council received over 100 reports of trees down or roads blocked/partially blocked by fallen trees, branches or debris right across the county yesterday along with reports of walls knocked and some property, roads, public light and footpath damage.

Over the course of 24 hours, Cork County Fire Service was mobilised 31 times to various incidents across the county, including road hazards, chimney fires, flooding calls, a road traffic collision, a house fire and a medical emergency.

The worst affected areas are in the west of the county and along the coast, but all areas of the county have been impacted.

Dursey Cable Car remains closed pending inspection, which is due to take place tomorrow.

Cork County Council continues to ask motorists, cyclists and pedestrians to exercise extreme caution as there is debris (leaves, branches, trees and other objects) over roads and footpaths right throughout the county and this clean-up operation will take a number of days.
