Storm barrier built in Clare bears down

Strong winds and swells were reported on Ireland’s west coast as Storm Hannah approached on April 26. Irish’s meteorological service issued a “Status Red” alert for County Clare and County Kerry, and warned of winds up to 150 km/h (93 mph). In the surf town of Lahinch, authorities used excavators to erect a barrier of rocks to weaken waves as they crash ashore. The town sustained damage in 2014, when a winter storm sent water surging up streets. Clare officials urged residents to stay indoors and to avoid travel. Credit: @noelm300 via Storyful
