Electricity outages were reported in over 2,000 properties in Letterkenny overnight as Storm Dudley struck Donegal.
While power has been restored to most homes, 139 customers are waking up to no electricity in the Ballyraine area.
The north west coast was lashed by strong winds and gusts during the orange wind alert overnight. The alert has been eased to a status yellow warning until midday.
There may be some localised spot flooding in parts of the North West, West & South West today, given the forecast rainfall and saturated ground conditions. Motorists are being asked to take extra care while driving.
People are being urged to take extreme care at the coasts. Dangerous conditions are also expected at sea as strong winds in combination with high tides will lead to large coastal waves and some coastal flooding.
