Environment Agency warns of further flooding

Environment Agency Wales says localised flooding is likely across many parts of Wales as further heavy rainfall is forecast overnight.

Further bands of persistent rain are expected to reach most of Wales on Saturday evening and through the night to Sunday. It is likely to be worse in south and mid Wales.The agency is also warning that a rapid thaw of remaining snow may contribute to flooding and surface water on roads.

Our staff are out in communities clearing blockages and making sure our defences and structures are ready for the further rain. As the ground is already very wet, any more rain could easily result in localised flooding.
