Dublin pedestrian struck by falling tree as fallout from Storm Ciara continues

A PEDESTRIAN in Dublin has been struck by a falling tree as Storm Ciara continues to wreak havoc over much of Ireland.

Heavy rain, strong winds and possible snow have combined for some of the most treacherous conditions imaginable.

The advice is simple: stay indoors and keep any and all trips outside to the bare minimum.

It comes in the wake of an incident that saw a pedestrian injured in Crumlin by a falling tree.

Firefighters and paramedics from Dolphin's Barn station had to be called out to the scene to help the injured party.

Thankfully, their injuries were non-life threatening, but it could have been a different story.

Dublin Fire Brigade has once again urged people to stay safe during the storm.

They wrote on Twitter:"Firefighter/Paramedics from Dolphin’s Barn have treated a patient for non-life-threatening injuries in Crumlin after they were hit by a falling tree. #StormCiara is making herself known across the city.

"Take care if you are out and about. Orange warning in place from 0500."

An Orange wind warning is already in place with Met Eireann forecasting powerful gusts of up to 130km/h.
