Flooding means there are no trains running between Blaenau Ffestiniog and North Llanrwst. There are replacement buses.
Figures out today show fire crews in Wales are attacked every week with more than 250 physical and verbal attacks since 2009-10.
These attacks include firefighters being spat at, having bricks, bottles and other objects hurled at them and being punched, kicked and harassed.
A Freedom of Information request to the three Welsh fire services found there have been 58 attacks in North Wales and 64 in Mid and West Wales.
South Wales Fire and Rescue service recorded the most with 129 including 66 counts of objects thrown at firefighters and equipment.
Commuters on their way to work or school face a grim journey this morning as the remains of Hurricane Gonzalo sweeps into Wales.
The North is expected to be worst hit with travel disruption possible.
In Holyhead there's a Force 9 gale blowing. That means winds over 50 miles an hour. Capel Curig in Snowdonia has hit 65.
There's a yellow warning of wind across much of Wales. The Met Office is predicting storm force winds on exposed coasts.
There are reports of trees being blown down in Pembrokeshire, Powys and on Anglesey.
One lane has been closed in both directions on the Severn Bridge and there's a speed limit on the Britannia Bridge.
Irish Ferries has cancelled some services between Holyhead and Dublin.
Meanwhile flooding means there are no trains running between Blaenau Ffestiniog and North Llanrwst.
RSPCA staff and volunteers say they have seen an alarming increase in the number of animals being abandoned across Wales.
In Wales alone the charity has been called out to deal with 2,427 reports of abandoned animals this year.
It's expected this number will increase dramatically as pet owners go away for Christmas or spend money on presents instead of vet bills.
One case of animals being ‘thrown away’ was when two puppies were dumped in a box in Flintshire at only three-weeks old.
It's believed the white and black Staffie cross pups died after being dumped in a box on an embankment near the McDonalds restaurant on St Asaph Road.
Warren Gatland is set to announce his squad for the upcoming Autumn series later today.
Wales face South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Fiji over the four game series which begins at the Millennium Stadium on November 8th.
Gatland is likely to turn to the trusted core of Welsh rugby for the majority of his squad but could also hand opportunities to some of the up and coming talent that has impressed over the opening weeks of the Guinness Pro 12 season.
While they will undoubtably feature in the wider squad selection Gatland will have difficult decisions to make when it comes to finalising his starting fifteen in three weeks time with several of his French and English based players struggling for game time at their respective clubs.
Full back Leigh Halfpenny has also only recently rejoined his Toulon team-mates following an extended injury break meaning he will have featured in just two games prior to the squad being named at 1100 Tuesday.
