    This blood-chilling moment, when a huge flock took to the skies was shared by an eye-witness via Twitter as Storm Ophelia hit the country, exactly 30 years after the violent Great Storm of 1987 battered England, France and the Channel Islands, causing multiple casualties.

    User Sarah Kavanagh, who filmed the eerie video of screeching birds moving inland, wrote on Twitter that it seemed like "they know there's something big coming."

    The devastating natural disaster was previously classified as a hurricane. According to local reports, hundreds of thousands were left without power across the country due to Storm Ophelia. At least three people were killed in separate incidents, Ireland's National Police announced Monday.
