Met Eireann has issued a yellow wing warning for counties Mayo, Galway and Roscommon until 11am this morning.

Generally there are no reports of any major road disruption this morning due to Storm Lorenzo overnight. However, motorists are being warned of potential hazards on the roads with extensive debris on most roads this morning.

A tree is down partially blocking the main Foxford to Castlebar road, between Foxford and Ballylahan bridge at present. A tree had come down between Ballylahan bridge and Bohola earlier this morning, but it has been dealt with, and part of a tree came down on the Killala to Ballina road and again it has been dealt with.

However, with a yellow wind warning still in place road users should exercise extreme caution.

Around 4-thousand homes and businesses in counties Mayo and Galway are without power this morning as Storm Lorenzo passes over Ireland.

The ESB says power outages are being reported in areas of Mayo, Galway, Kerry, Limerick and Dublin City Centre.

In Knockaphunta Castlebar there are 1200 homes without electricity since just before 6am, in Newport 137 households in the dark since 5am this morning. The ESB say it hopes to have the faults fixed later this morning.
