Up to 190,000 ESB customers remain without power today, after Ireland was battered by hurricane force winds yesterday.

Over 2,000 technicians are continuing efforts to restore services, with Cork, Kerry, Limerick and Clare the worst affected.

However the ESB is warning that it will take a number of days to repair the widespread damage.

The National Emergency Co-ordination Group held a meeting today to assess the impact of the storm, which was attended by the Environment Minister Phil Hogan.

Met Eireann says the adverse weather will continue over the coming days, with more heavy rain and strong winds forecast.

It also says yesterday's storm ranks among the top five worst to hit Ireland since weather records began.
