The clean-up is continuing today after the impact of Storm Elsa on Galway city and county, which caused severe flooding, while some roads were blocked by fallen trees and debris.

The Mayor of Galway is questioning why Met Eireann was so late in issuing a status orange wind warning last night - he says if the storm was flagged earlier in the day, the city council would have put its emergency plan in place.

Independent Councillor Mike Cubbard told Midwest News that the council responded once the orange warning was issued, but by then the storm was in full force.
