Limerick County Council Launches Severe Weather Guide

Limerick County Council has launched an online advice and information guide for householders and the business community on how to prepare for severe weather periods and how to handle emergencies during severe weather. The ‘Severe Weather Guide’ features flooding advice, reducing the risk of water leakages and shortages during freezing weather, safety tips for driving in snow and ice, information on the ice treatment regime/routes for the winter season, and emergency contact details, as well as a range of health and safety advice.

The initiative follows an increase in recent years of severe weather episodes, including the severe flooding in Newcastle West in August 2008, flooding along the lower River Shannon in November 2009, and the prolonged cold periods in December 2009 and December 2010.
