The fifth named storm of the season is bringing a "very windy" spell to the United Kingdom through this evening, the night and into Wednesday morning, according to forecasters.
Coastal roads and properties along Britain's western and southern coasts are vulnerable to high waves throwing beach material onto sea fronts, forecasters warned. It originally issued a yellow warning, but has now upgraded it to amber. This indicates that flooding is expected, and that "immediate action" is required.
As well as high winds there's also heavy rain too.
"The peak tide will be at midnight tonight, and we have had our teams out clear grids and gullies in preparation for the rain".
"Wednesday daytime sees a very blustery day, with squally gusts accompanying showers in many areas". Indeed, several people took to Twitter to share videos and pictures of flooding in and around the Galway area.
Officers said: "If you have to travel drive carefully and be aware of road conditions".
It comes as a yellow warning for wind remains in place from 6pm on Tuesday until 6pm on Wednesday. This is in effect from 7.30pm until 4am tomorrow.
Storm Eleanor, the fifth named storm of the winter, is forecast to arrive with gusts of 60 to 70 miles per hour likely, with stronger winds possible in some areas of the west coast.
"The wind will pick up again later on Tuesday and Wednesday as developing Storm Eleanor heads towards the United Kingdom and Ireland".
