Rhondda Cynon Taf Council is urging residents to “Be Aware” as reports predict continued heavy rainfall and an increased risk of flooding over the next 48 hours.
The County Borough has experienced extreme weather over the last few weeks, with heavy snowfall followed by heavy rainfall and storms, which has already resulted in flash flooding in some areas.
Those living in the County Borough are being urged to be mindful of debris and leaves that could be blocking drains near their homes and to make contact with the Council if they spot an obstruction or potential problems.
It is often the case that at this time of year a small pile of leaves can build up on a drain cover which can potentially cause a flooding issue and simply clearing them can ease the wider risk of water build-up and flooding.
If residents are able to do this themselves safely then they are encouraged to do so, or make contact if they need assistance.
Poor driving conditions are also being reported across the area as a result of the additional surface water on highways and motorists are being urged to slow down and take care whilst out and about.
The Council are doing all that they can to be prepared and remain on stand by should any issues arise.
