An American weather service has suggested Hurricane Ophelia will halt at the Irish Border.
Theresa May promised there would be 'no hard border' with the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland after Brexit ends the free movement of people in Europe, but apparently it will be able to repel category one hurricanes.
A graphic shared by the Weather Net US, showing the areas affected by Hurricane Ophelia, suggested that the six counties in the north of the island would be some miracle by unaffected by the weather.
#Redwarning in effect in #Ireland ahead of #HurricaneOphelia. Very dangerous weather tomorrow. https://t.co/CX9qYbf1Yn

At least they didn't colour it orange.
The image has prompted derision on social media.
Huge day for Northern Ireland as the weather finally picks a side in the constitutional question 👀 https://t.co/xYlo3v3tSl
