Met Eireann says it will decide later this morning if a potential storm heading towards Ireland will be named. A low-pressure system is making it's way towards Ireland, but the forecaster says it's currently tracking to the west of the country.

The forecaster issued a Yellow warning yesterday evening saying 'a spell of wet and very windy, possibly stormy, weather is expected on Thursday night/ Friday morning as a deep depression tracks Northwards to the West of Ireland.There is the risk of damaging gusts, especially along the West and Northwest coast. There is the also the risk of coastal flooding due to high tides and surge. Later Friday and continuing into Saturday there is the potential for some high totals of rainfall and flooding due to another area of low pressure and series of weather fronts., with the East and South particularly at risk.'

It comes as evacuations have been ordered in parts of Florida - as the US state prepares for Hurricane Michael. Forecasters are warning of potentially life-threatening flooding, with winds of up to 200 kilometres an hour expected.

Around 120-thousand people have been ordered to leave their homes as the storm approaches.
