Flood Warning issued on 16 Feb 2020 11:33
South West
The heaviest rainfall has cleared the area, however, river levels in the Lower Tywi will continue to rise until this afternoon. Surface water is already pooling behind defences this may cause some initial flooding. There is a risk that flood walls by the Old Llangunnor Road may overtop, though there is still considerable uncertainty in this. We recommend precautions are taken. In the main Pensarn industrial estate flood walls are higher and are currently not likely to overtop, however this area may still be affected by Surface water flooding. We will continue to monitor the situation.
