Clare County Council say there is no immediate threat of fresh flooding in Clare over the next 24 hours but have warned people in South East Clare and the Ennis area to remain vigilant ahead of expected heavy rain tomorrow [Friday] and Saturday.
In a statement to the Clare People in the past few minutes, the local authority says it is closely monitoring the situation and any necessary actions are being implemented. They say that regular contact throughout the day is being maintained with the ESB.
The statement also warns that areas in South East Clare which are in the zone of influence of the River Shannon are particularly vulnerable and people in all areas which have previously flooded should be vigilant and should take appropriate precautions.
“There are no issues of immediate concern but the situation is being monitored continuously and will be further reviewed tomorrow in advance of the weather system forecast for Friday evening/Saturday,” said a spokesperson.
