London / More than 245,000 homes in Ireland and about 7,000 in United Kingdom remain without light after Ophelia storm, that hit the north of the island in Great Britain with winds of up to 145 kilometres per hour at night.

In the Republic of Ireland and the Northern region of Northern Ireland, where three people died on Monday in accidents related to the strong winds, today the schools remained closed while works to remove fallen trees on roads continue and working to restore the electric fluid.

Nearly 20,000 homes remain without running water in Ireland, where authorities estimate that basic supplies will not be fully recovered within a few days.

Weather alerts were lifted this morning in UK following the troubles caused by the Ophelia storm in Wales, where 2,000 homes remain without light, and another 1,000 in Scotland.

In Glasgow (eastern Scotland), part of the façade of a block of flats in the process of demolition collapsed at dawn.

The rail service between Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Dundee, Fife and Perth was temporarily suspended after a goods train was hit by a tree.

The UK Meteorological Office (Met Office) said the remains of Ophelia, already weakened, have advanced to Scandinavia.
