Hundreds of homes and businesses are without power this morning following Storm Jorge.

All the outages are in Atlantic coastal counties, which felt the brunt of Saturday's storm.

Galway, Clare and parts of the midlands are also continuing to face the prospect of flooding - with several road closures across Galway and Tipperary.

A status yellow snow/ice warning was earlier in place for the entire country, but has since been stood down.

The Road Safety Authority (RSA) is warning people to watch out for black ice on the roads.

RSA spokesperson Brian Farrell says the driving conditions will still be dangerous following the storm.

"It really is important that we slow down because you could lose traction around that next corner.

"But we've also got to be on guard for any sleet or snow, and in particular hail stones."

"While most of the storm would have passed yesterday, it doesn't mean that the danger has passed."

"There could be downed trees, branches, telegraph poles on the roads."

"You really do have to be on guard: and that means slowing down and expecting the unexpected".
