St Asaph Floods: River levels back to normal


Staff reporter


RIVER levels at St Asaph are virtually back to normal and the severe flood warning has been downgraded to a flood warning, say council officials.

Sea defences are said to be in good condition and final checks are being carried out by Environment Agency.

The rest centre at St Asaph was empty last night with accommodation found for everyone - the majority of people were housed at the Robin Hood caravan park.

A spokesman for Denbighshire Council said: "Culverts and gullies across the county are being cleaned and an urgent assessment of them all is being undertaken today.

"Traffic is being diverted away from the Lower Denbigh Road in St Asaph (access only).

"Rhuddlan Bridge and Elwy Bridge, St Asaph have been deemed to be structurally safe.

"The council is arranging for the Youth Bus to be parked up at the Cathedral car park, St Asaph.

"It will act as a One Stop Shop with representatives from Social Care, Welfare Rights, Housing and other departments on hand to provide advice and information to those people affected by flooding.

"We will be pulling information packs and fact sheets together, so that we can make sure that residents know their rights and the support available."

The council is receiving many requests for support and offers of items and a dedicated e-mail address: and all requests will be collated and responded to from members of the Recovery Team.

Denbighshire Trading Standards is also warning people to be on their guard against the potential of people offering to carry out improvement works to properties.

The advice is to make sure that any work is given to legitimate individuals or companies.

The council is now planning its recovery phase and further information will be announced.
