Warnings issued as Storm Jorge expected to hit this weekend

An orange weather warning has been issued for seven counties along the west coast for Saturday morning.

Storm Jorge is making its way north to Ireland, bringing strong winds for the entire country.

Met Eireann has issued the orange alert for counties Kerry, Clare, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Leitrim and Donegal.

Storm Jorge has been named by the Spanish Met Office and is set to make landfall on Saturday.

Along with the orange warning for those counties, a yellow warning has been issued for the rest of the country.

Met Eireann says it is monitoring the progress of the storm before issuing more warnings.

As things stand the warning is in place from six o clock on Saturday morning along the south west and west coasts until the early hours of Sunday morning.
