There's another storm on the way - Storm Brian

Adding to this, Met Eireann has also issued a status yellow wind warning - as an Atlantic depression is expected to track eastwards over parts of the country on Saturday.

A yellow weather alert said: "A spell of strong southwesterly winds is expected".

"Those wind speeds can cause impacts to transport and power supplies, and the potential for unsafe waves also brings risks to coastal routes and communities, as well as the potential for flooding of homes".

Storm Brian will hit coastal towns and London the worst with high winds hitting already vulnerable parts of the country. "Short term loss of power and other services is also possible".

Ophelia's winds peaked at 100mph in Ireland and the storm's tail end whipped large swathes of south west England. At the moment, we don't expect the same level of impacts for the UK.

Forecasters said this will be worsened with the threat of heavy rainfall and flooding is feared in coastal areas in Wales and the south coast of England.

It further stated that the train departed at 9 am from Karmali and 230 passengers were served breakfast on board. The train was on its way from Goa to Mumbai when passengers complained about their deteriorating condition.

Despite Storm Aileen hitting the United Kingdom last month, and Ophelia earlier this week, Brian is the second, rather than third named storm of the year, as Ophelia was named as a hurricane.

Met Office spokesman Grahame Madge said: 'Dramatic waves could pose a threat to life and there will be quite hazardous conditions along the seafront'.

"The first and most significant land-based impacts will be in the south-west of Ireland, hence the amber warning from Met √Čireann".

Gusts of up to 50mph are expected to bring big waves off our coast too and we're told it could be particularly risky around high tide.

The gusts could bring more power cuts after Ophelia left 50,000 people in the United Kingdom and 170,000 in Ireland without power, and could also cause flooding and large waves.

On Monday, three people in Ireland died in the storm.
