The 16th of October was the day when Hurricane Ophelia hit Ireland. It was the worst storm ever in Ireland since 1961. Met Eireann tracked it from where it formed in the Atlantic Ocean. Through out the storm there were lots of wind, rain,floods and fallen trees. There was a Red Alert for all of Ireland for the day. It was very rare as Ireland never had a Red Alert before. The storm lasted a full day, it hit the South of Ireland first and went the whole way through the country. Hopefully Ireland will never get a storm like that again.
