Hurricane Charlie caused tumultuous overnight rainfall, resulting in severe flooding in the Donnybrook and Ballsbridge areas of Dublin. In just twelve hours, eight inches of rain fell, causing the Dodder, long regarded as a ‘flashy’ river, to burst its banks and flood 300 homes. Council workers and fire brigades did their best to alleviate hardship, removing debris and pumping out some of the homes affected.
