In addition to the high winds and lightning, there are warnings of large waves which may lead to overtopping along coastal routes and causeways. There is a strong possibility of disruption to public transport and power utilities.
Members of the public, businesses and communities are advised to plan ahead and prepare for possible power outages ahead of the storm. Where possible, secure outdoor items which could be dangerous in the wind. It is also asked that communities look out for vulnerable neighbours.
