Oh, okay.

We're in for one hell of a weekend, weather wise, folks.

The country is set to be battered by Storm Jorge, particularly the west coast.

And in preparation for the storm, Met Eireann has issued two orange weather warnings.

The warnings read:

"Status Orange - Wind warning for Galway, Mayo, Clare and Kerry."

"Some severe winds expected during Saturday associated with Storm Jorge (Hor-hay). Southwest quickly veering west and later northwest will reach mean speeds of 65 to 80km/h with gusts of 110 to 130km/h, possibly higher in very exposed areas with an elevated risk of coastal flooding."

"Valid: 06:00 Saturday 29/02/2020 to 03:00 Sunday 01/03/2020."
