Natural Resource Wales have upgraded to a SEVERE FLOOD WARNING in St Asaph and Rhuddlan
Parts of St Asaph including Spring Gardens, Roe Parc, Hen Waliau, The Roe, Tan-y-Bryn, Ashly Court and Dean’s Walk and the River Elwy from Spring Gardens Bridge to Rhuddlan HTM Business Park including parts of the A547 Abergele Road, A525 St Asaph Road and Station Road
The rainfall is forecast to continue for at least the next 4 hours and conditions are expected to deteriorate. Flood defences are now in operation and inspections taking place. Overtopping and/or breaches of these defences may cause flooding to properties at risk. In addition to the area detailed, some localised flooding problems may result from surface water trapped behind defences and overloaded drainage systems. The river levels from the Spring Gardens Bridge to Rhuddlan are expected to remain very high for a period of time.
Evacuations are taking place by North Wales Police at Spring Gardens Caravan Park and properties in Llys y Felin, St Asaph due to river level concern, all residents are being moved to Ysgol Glan Clwyd.
A number of roads are closed in and around St Asaph including the A525 from the A55, Lower Denbigh Road and the High Street.
