Storm Eunice made landfall over Ireland in the early hours of Friday morning and will continue her march across the nation as Friday progresses.

The weather bomb is expected to cause significant damage in counties which saw a red warning issued, with Met Éireann saying it could pose a threat to life in the most extreme circumstances.

Heavy rain, sleet, blizzard-like conditions, storm surge, spot flooding and destructively high winds are all expected on Friday morning, with anyone travelling urged to exercise extreme caution.

Independent.ie has compiled a list of the warnings issued to each of the 26 counties on Friday and any associated measures.
