FLOOD FORECAST STATEMENT – UPDATE 05/01/14 16:00hrs
PUBLISHED: 05 JAN 2014
Natural Resources Wales is urging people near the Wales coast to remain vigilant as strong winds are forecast this evening and overnight.
Although conditions are not predicted to be as bad as on Friday, the combination of strong winds and high tides will still make the coast a dangerous place to be.
South-westerly winds will gradually strengthen through this evening and overnight and by early tomorrow morning there’s likely to be gusts of around 60 mph on the coasts of Cardigan Bay, Caernarfon Bay, Carmarthen Bay, and Swansea Bay. The wind is likely to impact on the tides during Monday morning, generating very large waves.
Natural Resources Wales is advising people to avoid going close to sea fronts as conditions continue to be dangerous, especially as they could be damaged by the recent storm.
Officers from Natural Resources Wales have been out checking flood defences and repairing damage so they are robust as they can be.
People are advised to remain alert and keep up to date with the latest forecasts and news reports for details of disruption in their area.
Anyone concerned about flooding should contact Floodline on 0345 988 1188.
Flood warnings are updated on the Natural Resources Wales website every 15 minutes on this page.
