Flood waters continue to rise on the River Suir South of Thurles. However Met Éireann have issued a new Status Yellow rainfall warning for nine counties including Tipperary up to 9:00am on tomorrow, Saturday with up to 35mm of rain expected and with further rainfall predicted for Sunday January 3rd.

Tipperary Co. Council are concerned over the anticipated predicted rainfall over the coming days, which they claim may necessitate the evacuation of persons from certain areas affected by pre Flood Relief Scheme works in Clonmel.
In this regard, they are asking that those threatened with flooding prepare all necessary belongings including medication in a suitable bag and persons notified to evacuate should co-operate immediately, when asked to leave their property.
