The worst may not be over yet for the south of the country as up to 60mm of rain is expected over the next 24 hours alone. Motorists are warned to expect surface water and spot-flooding in parts of Cork county including Bandon, Macroom, Fermoy, Mallow and Skibbereen. We're speaking to Lena who is blind. She wants to thank the strangers who called to her on Monday with food and with a chicken for her Guide Dog Elsa. She went blind overnight when she was 31. The doctor at the time wanted to remove both her eyes because she would be in terrible pain. She said no and she has never had pain, in 41 years! Well done to those who helped her during Ophelia. We speak to Alistair from 'Alistair Heart Body Image Health and Fitness' in Clonakilty who is offering free warm showers to anyone with no power after Ophelia
