Kilkenny County Council have begun salting and ploughing Priority 1 and 2 roads around Kilkenny as Storm Emma rages on.

Roads from Ballyragget to Castlecomer and Mullinavat to Listerlin will not be salted this morning due to significant accumulations.

A Status Red alert remains in place until 6pm today in the county.

Footpaths are said to be in a dangerous condition and motorists are advised to drive with extreme caution.
