After 63% of August’s average rainfall fell within nine hours there was devastation across many areas in the North West of the province.
Roads and bridges crumbled, cars were washed away and homes and businesses were destroyed in the storm.
News reports shortly after reported that Firefighters rescued nearly 100 people who were trapped by flood water in their cars or homes. At one point, the fire service got an emergency call every 45 seconds. The coastguard rescued more than 30 people, with helicopters brought in from Scotland, Wales and Sligo.
