A flood alert warning has been issued for the Carmarthenshire coast as Storm Callum continues to batter the country.

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) issued the warning yesterday, Thursday (Oct 11).

Today, Friday (Oct 12) will see the arrival of a low-pressure system which will bring tidal surge, strong winds and large waves.

The tidal flood alert is set to remain in force through Friday and into the weekend with high tides predicted until Sunday (Oct 14).

NRW said on their website: “Impacts are currently expected to be minor, initially flooding of low lying land close to estuary locations is likely. Small amounts of wave overtopping can be expected at the most exposed locations.

“Be careful on beaches, promenades, coastal footpaths, roads, low lying land, close to the estuary during this period.”

An amber warning for heavy rain in south Wales has been issued by the MET office. Strong winds are expected throughout the country with gusts of up to 70mph in some areas.

Road Safety Wales have issued the following advice to motorists travelling in these conditions:

  • Plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey in the morning
  • Check traffic reports
  • Use your headlights
  • Keep your distance
  • Never attempt to drive through flood water
