Take Care Over The Stormy Weekend

Take Care Over The Stormy Weekend


Monday 24th Feb 2020


Denbighshire County Council is urging the public to be vigilant over the coming days as Storm Dennis approaches.

The Met Office is predicting very strong winds and heavy rain to affect the county on Saturday and Sunday, with the potential for some localised flooding and damage due to the wind strength.

Councillor Brian Jones, Cabinet Lead Member for Highways, Environment and Sustainable Travel, said: “Our teams worked hard last weekend in atrocious conditions to deal with flooding issues and keeping the county’s roads as clear as possible.  We are now facing the second major storm in a week and the yellow waring in place urges people to be vigilant.

“Our teams have been out and about during the week preparing for the storms and we have teams on stand-by to work with the other agencies to respond to any incidents that may happen in our county.

“We would advise people to  an eye on weather forecasts and any advice issued through social media, online and in the press.  The Council will be providing updates through its own social media accounts and we are asking people to take extra care.

Anyone concerned about the risk  flooding should contact the Floodline on 0345 988 1188 to register for updates or follow them on the Natural Resources Wales website: www.naturalresources.wales  Updates will also appear on the Met Office’s website: www.metoffice.gov.uk
