Further potential for flooding as heavy rain expected to return
1:10pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
Natural Resources Wales is asking people to be vigiliant for localised flooding as more heavy rainfall is expected across Wales this week.
Following a wet weekend and heavy showers on Monday and overnight, more persistent, heavy rain is forecast.
The outlook for the rest of the week remains unsettled with further spells of particularly heavy showers likely to cause ground to become saturated.
Given the time of the year, there is a risk that fallen leaves could block drains and cause flooding of road surfaces.
There is also a chance that smaller streams and ditches may not be able to cope with the heavy rain, causing localised flooding.
One flood warning for Llanddowror in Carmarthenshire is currently in place, along with four flood alerts.
Officers will continue to monitor river levels closely and will issue further flood alerts or warnings if neccessary.
People travelling to and from work are advised to take extra care as driving conditions may be hazardous.
Flood alerts and flood warnings are updated on the Natural Resources Wales website every 15 minutes and are available to view at www.naturalresourceswales.gov.uk/alerts Information and updates are also available via Natural Resources Wales’s twitter account: @natreswales
