Storms Isha and Jocelyn cause Massive Power Outages in Ireland

In the aftermath of Storm Isha and Storm Jocelyn, approximately 29,000 homes and businesses find themselves without electricity due to extensive storm damage in Ireland. The Electricity Supply Board (ESB) reported that last night, around 16,000 subscribers were left in the dark as a result of the impact of Storm Isha. Unfortunately, the power woes intensified with a further 18,000 experiencing outages attributed to Storm Jocelyn, particularly concentrated in the northwest.

While weather alerts linked to Storm Jocelyn have been lifted across affected regions, a lingering Status Yellow wind warning for Northern Ireland is set to remain in place until early this afternoon. Residents in the area are advised to exercise caution as the aftermath of the storms continues to pose challenges to power restoration efforts.

The dual assault of Storm Isha and Storm Jocelyn also took a toll on transportation, with a small number of flights cancelled in response to adverse weather conditions. Airlines have been working to manage the disruptions and facilitate affected passengers.
