“It’s quite unusual to have such a strong storm system in this part of the world.

It’s the strongest hurricane in the Atlantic on record in history.” Mr Gallagher stressed that the hurricane will downgrade to a storm by the time it hits Ireland.

The US National Hurricane Center said yesterday Ophelia had become a "rare category 3 hurricane south of the Azores", making it the "sixth major hurricane of the 2017 season".

"No significant change in strength is expected today, but gradual weakening should begin tonight or Sunday.

Bus Eireann has already moved to cancel school bus services for students in counties Cork, Kerry, Clare, Mayo and Galway, where the storm is likely to cause most disruption.

The company said it made the move to ensure the children would not be endangered in anyway.

A status red weather warning has been issued by Met Éireann - its highest warning - for Galway, Mayo, Clare, Cork and Kerry.

Met Eireann’s Gavin Gallagher said: “As you can imagine this morning, there’s quite a lot going on.Met Eireann has compared Ophelia to Debbie, which hit Ireland in 1961, killing 15 people when it brought record-breaking winds and caused severe disruption."It has the potential to be as bad as Debbie," said Pat Clarke of Met Eireann. These things can take on a life of their own but it certainly has the potential to be similar [to Debbie]." At this stage, there is strong evidence from weather forecast models that the remnants of Ophelia will track close to or over parts of Ireland, but at present, there are still a wide range of possible outcomes."You are going to see an increased frequency of extreme weather conditions like the 100-year floods happening every five or six years," Mr Naughten told the Sunday Independent."The climate change scientist won't relate any one particular event to climate change but the reality is we have seen in Ireland over the last decade very unusual weather incidents that would have been spread out over a much larger period up until now," he said.Some schools along the west coast may be forced to close because of the status red wind warning.
