This evening's Six One news report saw Teresa Mannion reporting live from Galway, which is facing the brunt of Storm Desmond at the moment.

Teresa's report, which was broadcast from Blackrock in Salthill, quickly became the talk of Twitter for its sense of drama.




In fact, she's already inspired a few young people to get into the weather reporting game... 

The swimmers which Teresa was referring to comes from a viral video shared on Facebook yesterday which saw two young men jumping off the pier in the middle of Storm Desmond. The video, which drew sharp criticism, reached over 400,000 views in a single day.

In the meantime, let's just hope Teresa Mannion's OK. And seriously, stay the f*** out of the water. You're putting your life and the people who'll have to rescue your stupid ass at risk.
