Kil­mac hit by floods and heavy snow

Bray People - - NEWS -

THERE WAS flood­ing in the Kil­macanogue area last Fri­day morn­ing, af­ter a night of in­clement weather.

There was heavy snowfall in the higher ar­eas of Kil­macanogue and to­wards Round­wood. The flood­ing was lo­calised to the vil­lage it­self and parts of the N11 south­bound at Kil­mac.

Wicklow County Coun­cil out­door staff were on the scene that morn­ing in an ef­fort to clear the flood wa­ters.

Cllr. Christo­pher Fox said that it would not be un­usual to have some flood­ing in Kil­macanogue around the Post Of­fice. How­ever this was on a larger scale.

There was no elec­tric­ity in the wider Kil­macanogue area from around 8 a.m. on Fri­day.

‘ESB net­works have said that this is a sig­nif­i­cant fault,’ said Cllr. Fox, adding that there was no power in a large area stretch­ing as far as Round­wood.
