HUNDREDS of thousands of euro damage was caused in Ballybofey last night after the River Finn overflowed into the car park of a local hotel.
At least 15 cars parked at Jackson’s Hotel were destroyed and another three are believed to have been swept away following a night of torrential rain.
Substantial damage was also caused to expensive equipment and costumes when water flowed into the nearby Balor Theatre. Volunteers are currently involved in a clean-up operation there.
As well as the Twin Towns, many other parts of the county have been hit including Letterkenny, Donegal town and Castlefinn.
A number of roads across the county are also closed as a result of flooding and drivers are asked to proceed with caution.
