Storm Isha has left a trail of destruction after battering the country overnight.

There have been fallen trees in many counties, with power outages and powerlines down along with spot flooding.

The ESB says that as of 6.30 this morning 235 thousand homes, farms and businesses were without power this morning.

ESB Networks crews will mobilise again at first light to assess the damage ad restore electricity supply.

While the red and orange wind warnings issued for a number of counties yesterday are now over, yellow alerts are still in place for Clare, Donegal, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo.

Alan O'Reilly from Carlow Weather says a better day lies ahead but watch out for debris.
