  • Hurricane Ophelia: What time will hurricane Ophelia hit Ireland?

Once the hurricane arrives following its journey across the Atlantic Ocean it is expected to bring winds of up to 70mph.

The storm is the 10th hurricane that has developed in the Atlantic this season.

The US National Hurricane Centre has warned it could strengthen over the next day or so.

Ecowas gives clean bill of health to Liberian election
Worldwide observers say the polls went smoothly despite late start to voting in some counties. Provisional election results are expected this Thursday, the election commission said.

Met Office forecaster Alex Burkhill said: "Ophelia became a hurricane overnight and the forecast track takes it eastwards towards Iberia for the weekend". That would keep the center of the storm south of most of the Azores, but close enough that a tropical storm watch or warning might be issued later today.

However, the worst of the winds are expected to hit the West coast, reaching 150kph and potentially 160kph in the extreme West coast, by Monday night.

The storm will coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Great Storm of 1987, which hit southern England on October 15 1987, costing an estimated £1 billion and claiming 18 lives. It actually has happened four times (in 1878, 1886, 1893 and 2017), but named storms were much more likely to be hurricanes back in the 1800s because a lack of satellites and other technology meant only the strongest storms and those making landfall would be noticed.

IAF personnel killed in gunfight with militants in Kashmir
Large contingent of Police and Para-military troopers had been deployed on roads to maintain law and order. Meanwhile, mobile Internet service has also been suspended in the district following the gunfight.

While rare, it is not unprecedented to have post-tropical storms reach the British Isles.

The Met Office said: "Western parts of the United Kingdom will see the strongest winds, with gusts within the region of 60-65mph potentially on Monday".

Overall, the unsettled weather looks likely to continue into Tuesday due to a separate band of low pressure, and will remain changeable throughout the rest of the week.
