Thousands without power after Storm Callum

Around 100 customers in Donegal are without power this morning following strong winds overnight.

An amber warning for rain remains in place for parts of south Wales until 6pm with further flooding and power cuts expected.

"We also have yellow and amber warnings of between 50mm and 150mm of rain for Wales".

Thousands of homes have experienced power cuts, mainly caused by falling branches and debris damaging lines.

You can tell us about weather-related travel problems, localised flooding or issues with schools or workplaces, or anything else that you think will help us build a picture of how people and communities are being affected.

Businesses along Carmarthen quayside have been warned of potential flooding with the River Towy expected to breach the walls.

Those planning to travel ahead of the weekend should note there may be significant disruption following the storm.

Rail timetables in the South and North West have also been amended, while commuters in Northern Ireland were warned of disruption to services due to high winds.

Calmac cancelled many of its Western Isles ferries for the entire day and advised passengers to check before travelling.

Winds of up to 130 km/h are set to hit parts of the country with high risk of flooding and damage in coastal areas.

A yellow weather warning is in place in those areas - and parts of northern and south western England as well as some of Scotland - while a higher amber alert is in force for Wales.

"We are also starting to see the rain push in to parts of south-west England and part of the Republic of Ireland", Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkhill said.
