Most of the main roads have been cleared of fallen trees, poles and debris, but many rural roads remain either blocked or passable with care.

Mid Ulster PSNI have been patrolling the district all morning and are urging motorists to drive with care especially on smaller, rural roads.

The main Moneymore Road, Magherafelt, was blocked for time overnight after damage was caused to a building between Ballymoughan Road and Dunronan Road.
