The Department for Infrastructure has issued a warning to road users to be vigilant in the coming days as strong winds from Storm Isha could cause havoc.

A series of three separate weather warnings begin across Northern Ireland today Sunday, with the Department warning that ‘strong and disruptive winds’ could cause fallen trees, flooding and debris on the roads. 

The strongest winds from Storm Isha are expected to come on Monday but could continue for the rest of the week.

DfI says its full maintenance service for the roads will not be in place due to ongoing industrial action over pay.

“The weather conditions could lead to debris on the roads, fallen trees, flooding and spray or large waves on exposed and vulnerable coastal areas,” a statement said.

“Conditions could lead to traffic disruption and the public are being asked to consider their journeys and if travelling are advised to take extra care and exercise caution given the risk of obstructions on the roads. Due to the potential for large waves, flooding of coastal roads is also possible – please remember not to drive through flood water.

The stormy conditions are expected to hit all of Northern Ireland, but will be strongest around the coast, particularly the North Coast area.
