All the flood warnings issued in Wales due to Storm Ciara


A number of flood alerts and warnings are in place across Wales as Storm Ciara brings rain and strong winds to the country.

A total of nine flood warnings and 29 flood alerts have been put in place by Natural Resources Wales.

The majority of the alerts are in north and south west Wales as parts of the country brace for more than a month’s worth of rain in a day, according to the Met Office.

At 9am on Sunday, flooding had already closed part of the A470 in North Wales at Llanrwst and high winds meant that the Briton Ferry bridge on the M4 had to be shut in both directions.

The Met Office has issued an amber warning for high winds, with the south coast likely to be the worst hit throughout the day.
