Severe weather with torrential rain and floods threatened people in England


At least two people are dead and Wales suffered the “worst flooding in 30 years.” A person was killed in a landslide in Cwmduad in the county Carmarthenshire in Wales. A young man, 21, was killed in a landslide on A484 in Cwmduad, Carmarthenshire. Roads in Carmarthenshire remain closed. Flooding around Cardiff Central and Aberdare regions has left trains unable to run. The River Towy in Carmarthen breached the town’s defenses.The strongest wind in Britain was recorded on Saturday in Milford Haven as gusts of 60 mph battered the Pembrokeshire coast.


About 100 sheep washed away in flood waters in Carmarthenshire. Thousands of households were left without power and dozens of flights were grounded in the weekend. A Met Office forecaster said: “The South West, the Midlands and western parts of London that escaped much of the storm’s wrath over the last couple of days will experience very heavy downpours at times.” And he added: “There’s a cool clear start for many parts of the UK on Monday, and actually for much of the UK it’s a dry fine and sunny day to boot.” Flood warnings were also issued in Scotland.
