“I found this person when I was editing these photos to get printed. As far as I know the person had to be rescued. What I was told he survived by holding onto the metal railing attached to the lifeguard station….How this person wasn’t swept out to sea, I just don’t know…

Anyone?

What remained of Youghal’s boardwalk [in east Cork] has been pummelled by the sea this morning. Very sad.

John Crowley just sent Tramore Tourism this amazing photo of a giant wave hitting the Pier in Tramore. The pier storm wall is 30ft high so you can call a height on it yourself. Answers on a post card please…. What height is this wave?

Tramorre

Storm is surging over Tramore Promenade. Please everyone stay well clear of the beach area this morning. Do not attempt to drive anywhere along the beach front! The tide is dropping but the swell & wind is still increasing. Big thanks to Tony Power for this amazing photo. Stay safe out there people.

A wall of water going up then the wind takes over and it crashes back to earth with a big splash flooding all around it. Amazing sight. Nature at its best but you got to be at your most careful. Tramore County Waterford [last night].

MizenHead

Best Photo’s of Baltimore writes this morning:

A calm day at the Mizen Head the other day! 50ft swell expected to hit the coast here later and I hear An Siopa in Cape Clear has already lost its windows and is flooded. Be safe everyone.

The observatory said the detection was made around the time of a thunderstorm over Dublin on the 24/25 July 2013.
The images show the sprite, a carrot-shaped flash of light, rising high above the thunderclouds as seen from Armagh.
Typical lightning discharges often jump between clouds or between clouds and the ground.
Sprites are associated with similarly powerful electrical fields that occur high above the clouds of the Earth’s atmosphere often during particularly intense thunderstorms.
