Met √Čireann issues heavy wind warnings in wake of Hurricane Ophelia

Hurricane Ophelia 2017 could bring hurricane conditions to Ireland next week

Hurricane Ophelia is moving northeastwards far out over the Atlantic Ocean.

"By the time Ophelia reaches the United Kingdom it will no longer be a hurricane, but will most likely still be a detailed low pressure system bringing strong winds across Northern Ireland and western parts of the United Kingdom", the Met added.

Ophelia should no longer be a hurricane by the time it reaches Ireland, but will still whip up a powerful storm, the USA hurricane centre predicted. Now there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

A strong tropical wave several hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles is "producing disorganised showers and thunderstorms", according to the NOAA's National Hurricane Center.

Rahul should wear Gujarati, not Italian spectacles to see development: Amit Shah
The assembly elections in Gujarat will be conducted in December, so there's just around 2 months left to complete the campaigning. The BJP's Gujarat Gaurav Yatra will continue till October 15 and during this period 138 jan sabhas will be addressed.

The hurricane center's five-day forecast, which can change, has Ophelia heading close to the British Isles by Monday afternoon.

Although the cooler waters around Ireland and the United Kingdom mean the storm won't have the same power that some of the season's earlier storms gained in the Caribbean, the unusual trajectory could lead to one of the worst storms Ireland has seen in many years.

Ireland's weather service, Met Eireann, said the system "has the potential to be a high-impact event in parts of the country" and issued a severe weather advisory for the area.

A Met Office spokesperson said: "Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journeys times and cancellations possible".
