Ireland will have to brace itself for some horrible weather over the next few days after Met Éireann issued multiple warnings.

The final weekend of September will be a real mixed bag weather-wise as wind and heavy rain showers will batter the country on Thursday night and Friday morning.

In particular, the western half of the island will take a torrential soaking - so much so that the national forecaster has put a status yellow warning in for 12 hours on Friday.

The warning reads: "Becoming wet and windy tonight and during Friday morning with strong and gusty southerly winds developing. Heavy rainfall may cause some localised flooding."

It affects Clare, Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo but the rest of the country will not escape the bad conditions, as expert Alan O'Reilly has explained.

The man behind the Carlow Weather twitter account wrote: "Tomorrow morning will be an awful morning with very heavy rain and strong winds. The rain will move quickly across the country clearing East by around lunchtime but over 30mm is possible in Northwest. Winds easing slowly through the afternoon."

Things may seem bad in Ireland but they are far worse in the eastern coast of the US at the moment as over two and a half million people have been forced to evacuate due to Hurricane Ian.

Ian hit Florida so severely that a shark washed up into a neighbourhood street from a nearby beach.

A video widely shared on social media on Wednesday showed the dangerous animal swimming in the rising flood waters near Fort Myers beach.

Millions of people have been forced to evacuate across Florida, while the entire nation of Cuba saw their power knocked out as a result of the tropical storm.
