Storm Ophelia hit the Irish city of Cork on Monday, causing damage to infrastructure and uprooting some trees. All schools, colleges, and childcare facilities were closed, while the majority of hospital appointments were also cancelled. The last time the country experienced a similar event was more than 50 years ago. That storm resulted in the deaths of 11 people.
