A Met Office YELLOW weather warning affecting Rhondda Cynon Taf has been issued from midnight until 1pm tomorrow (Tuesday, November 15) due to heavy rain, which may cause some disruption.
This may result in traffic and travel disruption across the County Borough. Public transport may also be affected by the weather conditions. Motorists are advised to allow extra time for their journeys and drive according to the conditions during the weather warning.
The Council’s Highways and Streetcare departments have already undertaken proactive measures by continuing to clear drains and gullies of fallen leaves due to the time of year. Staff are also continually monitoring water levels in all its culverts.
But the public is advised to remain alert and take extra care throughout the Met Office weather warning. Where possible and safe to do so, residents and businesses are also being asked to themselves help alleviate the risk of flooding in local areas.
There are small actions we can do which could make a big difference at this time, such as removing fallen leaves and clearing other debris from private drains and properties, as these often result in blocked drains and gullies.
If you have any issues outside of office hours, please call the Council’s Emergency Out of Hours number, 01443 425011. Also, follow the Council’s official Twitter and Facebook accounts for regular updates.
