Threat of flooding as yet more rain expected

Parts of Wales are at risk of localised flooding as forecasts indicate yet more bad weather is in store.

Bands of heavy rain are expected to affect south-west, mid and north-west areas of Wales over the weekend.

Experts say the incessant wet weather over the Christmas period, combined with last month’s heavy rainfall, means the ground remains saturated and at risk of flooding.

Environment Agency Wales advises there is currently one flood warning in place for the River Ritec at Tenby and seven flood alerts in place across Wales. They say it is likely that more flood alerts and warnings will be issued across the country.
