Yellow rain warning in place for Pembrokeshire

First published in News

A yellow rain warning is in place for Pembrokeshire today (Monday).

Pembrokeshire County Council said it had received a number of calls this morning, mainly relating to blocked drains/gullies causing or posing a risk of minor surface water flooding.

At present St Florence’s Devonshire Drive, between Manor Park and Crane Court, is closed due to flooding.

The current weather front (heavy rainfall) affecting north Wales is expected to extend to western Wales later this afternoon.

No large totals of rainfall are expected for Pembrokeshire, with a maximum of 15 to 20 mm predicted.

With the current levels of ground saturation this may lead to some isolated flooding incidents and vigilance is still advised.

Perhaps the council will sort out the drain at the bottom of Lewis Street Pembroke Dock. The water runs over the dropped curb on to the pavement, round the corner and down the middle of the pavement in Dimond St, then if Boots are unlucky into their shop.

Sub-standard sub-editing, it seems.

Perhaps you might tell us the correct wording - remembering the space constraints imposed?
