BREAKING Storm Callum officially named as Weather Warnings upgraded to Orange for many areas

At 7pm, they issued three separate Orange Wind warnings for various counties across Ireland.

The Met Office said both Friday and Saturday are expected to be wet and windy days as Storm Callum moves in from the Atlantic.

LIMERICK City and County Council has convened its Severe Weather Assessment Team (SWAT) ahead of the arrival of Storm Callum.

The Met Office said there will be strong winds and rainfall up to 10cm, leading to possible flooding and hard driving conditions.

The weather warning has been issued for Dublin, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Meath, Cork, Waterford, Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry and will remain in place from 10pm tonight until 9am on Friday.

The Met Office has therefore warned that there is chance of injuries and a danger to life.

"Some exposed locations could see as much as four inches by the end of Friday".

But, unfortunately, it requires quite a lot of space and the company had to ditch 3.5mm audio jack in the OnePlus 6T . Through this system, the phone's display houses an optical fingerprint module, that uses the screen as a light source.

The council has distributed sandbags to protect homes at risk of flooding.

The warning for those counties is in place from Friday 12 October 2018 00:01 to Friday 12 October 2018 09:00.

A yellow warning for wind is in place across the west coast of Scotland, including Glasgow and parts of the central belt, throughout Friday.

Meanwhile high tide is due to occur at 7.45am tomorrow, and is expected to coincide with storm surges and low atmospheric pressure, leading to concerns of flooding in the area of Galway Harbour, Spanish Parade, and the Fishmarket.

Either way Storm Callum is coming and has the potential to cause damage ( though mostly in the west of the country).

James Nicholas of Arriva Trains Wales said: "There is significant rain expected this weekend across Wales coupled with high winds and very high tides, particularly up on the Cambrian Coast - linking in to Shrewsbury".

A National Emergency Coordination group has now been set up in order to deal with the storm. There will be rough seas and large waves, making coastal areas unsafe. There will also be spells of heavy and persistent rain bringing the risk of localised flooding for Wales, NW and SW England, Northern Ireland and again to western Scotland.
