Reassurance for people affected by Rhyl flooding

Denbighshire County Council and Natural Resources Wales have offered reassurance to people affected by flooding in Rhyl yesterday.

We are fully aware of the traumatic experience that people are going through and would like to do our very best to offer some kind of reassurance to them.

Events like this are very rare and Thursday's sea surge was extreme. In general, the flood defences along the coast have done their job and protected the majority of our coastline. The primary sea defences worked well and a temporary patch has been done to splash the wall. It held last night and we are confident it will continue to hold.

In terms of security, Police will have resources in the area affected by flooding and mobile CCTV cameras will also be used as added resources.

– Rebecca Maxwell, Denbighshire County Council
