Storm Ophelia destroys stadium roof of Irish cup holders Cork City

Amber wind warning issued for parts of North Wales Brexit Divisions Make Talks Harder, Says Irish Premier

A metal advertising sign was pictured in one person's front garden.

The fatalities were in Waterford, Tipperary and Louth - a woman in her 50s was killed when a tree struck the auto she was travelling in, a man in his 30s died as he was working on a fallen tree with a chainsaw and, later in the afternoon, a man was killed when the vehicle in which he was travelling in was struck by a tree.

Winds of more than 70mph (112km/h) and heavy rain are hitting parts of Scotland and northern England as remnants of Hurricane Ophelia continue to sweep across the UK.

It has issued a "status red" weather alert.

Ireland and Northern Ireland bore the brunt of the storm as it battered the British Isles, with around 245,000 homes and businesses still without power in the republic. Permanent TSB Group Holdings closed its offices, while some 160 flights have been canceled at Dublin airport.

Cork City are just one point away from being crowned League of Ireland Premier Division champions, but Ophelia forced their match with Derry City on Monday to be postponed.

"Southerly winds are most likely to gust between 55mph and 65mph across much of the warning area with the potential for gusts of 80mph in coastal areas, particularly on the eastern side of Northern Ireland". The resort, which has said it can lose as much as 10 meters of land to coastal erosion during a bad storm, is along the route expected to be hit by Ophelia's gale force winds.

Ophelia may also bring record wind power generation.
