11/09/20 Status yellow rainfall warning for Donegal.

Met Éireann have issued a status yellow weather warning for rainfall for County Donegal from noon on Saturday 12th until noon on Sunday 13th September 2020. This may lead to rainfall accumulations of between 25 to 35mm.


Given that the ground is already water-logged in certain locations it is possible that some localised surface flooding could occur anywhere within the county.


Heavy rain may overwhelm drains and gullies and property owners / occupiers are being asked to check these for potential blockages.


Motorists are being asked to take extra care while driving during heavy rainfall and to be mindful of the potential risk of spot flooding along the road network.


Donegal County Council’s Severe Weather Assessment Team are keeping the approaching weather pattern under review and will continue to monitor all local conditions during this period of unsettled weather.


Donegal County Council can be contacted during normal business hours on 074 91 53900 and in the event of an out-of-hours emergency the Council’s Road Service can be contacted on 074 91 72288.  For emergencies requiring the assistance of the Fire Service call 999 or 112.


You can keep up to date on conditions by signing up for free alerts to your phone by registering at or by following Donegal County Council on Facebook or on Twitter @DonegalCouncil.
