Storm Franklin will pose a possible risk to life in Northern Ireland tonight and tomorrow morning, the Met Office has warned.

An amber wind warning has been issued by the forecasters, with the public told to stay indoors if they can due to the danger of flying debris.

Even the areas of Northern Ireland not covered by the amber warning face a yellow weather warning until Monday afternoon (February 21).

Official warnings say there is a “strong chance” of power cuts, disruption to mobile signal, travel delays and damage to buildings.

The amber warning is in place from midnight (12am Monday, Feb 21) until 7am on Monday morning.

While the yellow alert lasts until 1pm on Monday.

Wild weather led to flooding on some Northern Irish roads on Sunday morning (February 20).
