Storm uproots trees; Steam Packet to sail later tonight; Flights delayed and cancelled

Waiting for Video...
 

The storm has uprooted dozens of trees and left the Steam Packet’s Ben-my-Chree sheltering in port.

Police and the Department of Infrastructure are dealing with blocked roads throughout the island.

The wind was so strong that a van was blown over on Mooragh Promenade, Ramsey. A reader sent in a photo of it.

Among the roads affected this morning were:

Clenagh Road, Sulby
