The National Emergency Co-Ordination Group will meet this morning ahead of the arrival of Storm Jorge.

A status yellow rainfall warning is in place for all of Munster and Connacht, along with Donegal.

Meanwhile, three separate wind warnings, two orange and one yellow, will affect the entire country on Saturday, when the storm arrives.

People are being advised to secure their wheelie bins and not to park under trees during the strong winds.

Brian Farrell from the Road Safety Authority says people should take proper precautions, "Making sure wheelie bins are brought in so they're not going to cause a hazard for other road users."

"When it comes to parking your car, be careful if you're parking your car under a large tree that that tree doesn't come down on your car. We have seen instances of that happening over the last couple of weeks."
