Wind speed of 47mph recorded in Chesterfield as Storm Ophelia batters country

Chloe Smith said time to restore the devolved government was running out

Winds of more than 70mph (112km/h) and heavy rain are hitting parts of Scotland and northern England as remnants of Hurricane Ophelia continue to sweep across the UK. Using a prior forecast track, Chuck Watson, a disaster modeler at Enki Research in Savannah, Ga., said damages from Ophelia in Ireland could reach $800 million and $300 million in the United Kingdom.

Ophelia may also bring record wind power generation.

Northern Ireland is set to face the worst of the storm, but the Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for a number of areas including the North West.

British Prime Minister Theresa May says her country is ready to provide any support to Ireland if requested.

Ireland's Health Service Executive has warned of disruption in the coming days, with cancellations to appointments and hospital discharges.

The play was reminiscent of many long passes the Pats gave up this season on miscommunications in the defensive backfield. The win was the 187th regular-season win for Brady, who has 212 total victories, including the playoffs.

The south-west coast is thought to have suffered the brunt of the damage, with Cork one of the worst-hit areas.

Crews from Northern Ireland joined efforts today while others from Scotland and France are expected to be drafted in to help from tomorrow.

"This storm is still very active and there are still very unsafe conditions in parts of the country".

Mrs May said she was "absolutely clear" that it was in the interests of everyone in Northern Ireland to see a fully functioning executive up and running so that local decisions could be made by local politicians.

Forecasters warn: "Very strong winds are forecast to affect most western and some central parts of the United Kingdom during Monday".
