Storm force winds have continued batter the North West with gusts of more than 130 kilometers already recorded. A Number of roads across Donegal are virtually impassable as a result of fallen trees and power lines ... At the height of the storm this evening, Dec 31st, 20,000 homes were without power. Much of the county has had power restored, but there are several thousand homes in West Donegal which are likelt to remain without power until the morning.
