Your turn Europe (Ireland)

Powerful Hurricane Ophelia heads toward Ireland

Hurricane Ophelia strengthened as it marched toward Ireland, where it's forecast to bring strong winds and heavy rains this week.

The Category 3 hurricane had sustained winds of 185 kilometers per hour (115 mph) as it passed east of the Azores early Sunday.
Ophelia will have big impacts for the British Isles beginning Monday, including hurricane-force winds forecast for Ireland.
The fast-moving storm intensified Saturday but is expected to gradually weaken overnight and become a post-tropical cyclone within 24 hours, according to the National Hurricane Center.
It warns the powerful storm will still bring hurricane-force winds as it moves near Ireland and the United Kingdom.
"Direct impacts from wind and heavy rain in portions of these areas are likely, along with dangerous marine conditions," the center said late Saturday. "Although the center of Ophelia is not forecast to reach Ireland or the UK until Monday, wind and rains will arrive well in advance of the cyclone center."
Tropical-storm-force winds are possible throughout the Azores on Saturday night behind a cold front following the hurricane, the NHC said.
"The odd part about Ophelia is seeing this intensification take place in what's normally a much cooler region of the Atlantic Ocean," CNN Meteorologist Allison Chinchar said.
"Wind is going to be the biggest factor," Chinchar said of the forecast for Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland, where wind gusts could reach 130 kph (80 mph). The coasts of Portugal and Spain will see wind gusts of up to 90 kph (56 mph).

No

It is already weakening and will no longer be a hurricane by the time it reaches Ireland. It will be a severe storm but we've had worse in these islands - indeed 30 years to the day we had a great storm with winds of hurricane speed which was seen as a disaster at the time but actually reinvigorated ancient woodlands by taking out trees that proper forest management should have removed and allowing new growths to be established.

Back in the late 60's a hurricane strength storm hit Scotland. I was on board a Vickers Viscount flying into the old Glasgow Airport at the time. We were the last plane in before they shut down. It was my first flight so I didn't realise that all the jolting around was anything unusual!

3 people killed, a good bit of storm damage with power lines down. Details here.
Fasted gust recorded was 191 km/h off the coast with gusts up to 156 km/h over land.

3 Weird Impacts From Storm Ophelia Explained
EXCERPT:
...
Along with hurricane-force winds, the storm has caused red skies in England and wildfires in the Iberian Peninsula—which some are likening to the apocalypse.

By Elaina Zachos
PUBLISHED October 16, 2017

This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang but a whoosh.

It’s strange enough the U.K. is in the path of Storm Ophelia, a post-tropical storm that touched down in Ireland Sunday evening. Because of its eastern location and chillier climate, the U.K. doesn’t usually get warm water-loving hurricanes. But this time, it was different.

Ophelia made landfall in Ireland because of warmer-than-normal waters and a cooler upper atmosphere. A 2013 study in Geophysical Research Letters predicted that, sparked by rising temperatures, Western Europe could see more hurricanes in the future. With Ophelia as the 10th Atlantic hurricane this season, there’s something eerie in the premonition.

Ophelia’s rage hasn’t been sequestered to just the U.K., though. There’s a host of other weird phenomena that have fallen in the storm’s wake.

Is was only slightly impacted by the storm. Most of the damage was done on the southwest coastal region of Ireland (the political entity).
