Largs Community Resilience Team have warned of storm disruption to the coastal road this evening. 

A spokesman said:”Storm Dennis and High Tide means increased risk on coast at Largs around 5pm Saturday. Given recent experience the road to Greenock may again be closed for your safety.”

Due to high winds the Cal Mac Cumbrae ferry service has been suspended until further notice.

Largs RNLI were also alerted to a sea emergency as pagers were activated at 11.50am but were stood down before the lifeboat launched. 

ScotRail trains are currently running.

A spokesperson said: “ All services are currently running well, but that may change as #StormDennis progresses, so remember to check your journey on our app.”

Stagecoach 585 buses have also warned passengers of possible disruption throughout the day due to the storm.

Sporting events have also been cancelled because of the weather. 

Football matches involving Largs Thistle and their community clubs have been called off and a major sailing event has also been postponed. 

A sailing club spokesman said: “HARKEN FROSTBITE SERIES - It appears that the forecasts for the arrival and impact of Storm Dennis have been remarkably accurate. Unfortunately this means that there will be no racing on Sunday 16 February 2020 and the first races for the Harken Frostbite Series will now be scheduled for next week, Sunday 23 February. It is never an easy decision to cancel racing in advance, but the forecast is of around 30 knots with gusts over 40 knots during the race times and low temperatures.”

Sunday’s Largs SNP organised beach clean has been postponed due to adverse conditions forecast.
