An estimated 12,000 people are still without power this morning after Storm Ali on Wednesday.

Two people died during the storm.

A full service on the Luas Green line in Dublin has resumed this morning.

It is understood the majority of those without power are in the Tuam, Mullingar, Cavan and Longford areas.

Up to 180,000 homes were without power at one stage on Wednesday. Repair efforts were hampered by Storm Bronagh, which followed Storm Ali yesterday, and brought heavy rain across the country yesterday evening and overnight.

Met Éireann meteorologist Joan Blackburn says they are  monitoring a weather system that may develop into a third storm, Storm Callum, late on Saturday evening.

She says this system has the potential to develop into something “nasty,” which would hit Ireland late on Saturday into Sunday morning and this weather system is being kept under review.
