Natural Resources Wales' storm warning

Natural Resources Wales is warning of the risk of localised flooding and disruption as the next band of heavy rainfall and stormy weather approaches.

They say that whilst all of Wales can expect heavy rainfall, the worst affected areas are likely to be Powys, Denbighshire, Flintshire, and Wrexham. Significant rainfall totals of up to 60mm over a short duration overnight could lead to flooding from surface water and rivers.

Natural Resources Wales staff will be on standby to deal with incidents and and reduce the potential flood risk. They are reminding people that flood water can be extremely dangerous, and should not attempt to walk or drive through it unless instructed by the emergency services.
