Storm Ali is wreaking havoc all over the UK and Ireland, causing dozens of flight delays and cancellations.

Passengers on Ryanair Flight 1453 had a terrifying experience Wednesday morning when the flight from Brussels attempted to land at Dublin airport. The severe weather conditions resulted in a go-around by the pilots.

The flight eventually landed without issue at DUB.

Ryanair released the following statement: “This flight from Brussels to Dublin (Sep 19) performed a routine go-around due to high winds, before landing normally.”

This Ryanair flight isn’t the only one that’s been affected by severe weather in the region. Multiple Dublin-bound flights circled before being diverted to surrounding airports.

The Northern Ireland Electricity Networks report that 47,000 of its customers remain without power due to strong wind gusts and heavy rain. One death has been reported after a caravan with a 50-year-old woman inside blew off a cliff in County Galway.
