Here we go again! Storm Dennis is on the way

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 February.

Storm Dennis is expected to arrive around 12pm on Saturday lunchtime through to Sunday lunchtime. Storm Dennis is expected to bring outbreaks of rain, heavy and intense at times, with mist and fog over hills, and is expected to affect all of South Wales over the weekend.

At this stage, Storm Dennis is not expected to be quite as powerful as the recent Storm Ciara in terms of strength of wind, but is expected to bring more rain than Ciara.

The forecast wind and rain may cause further damage, especially as trees and structures may have been weakened by Storm Ciara, and the ground is saturated which may cause short-term localised flooding.

Drivers should be aware of the weather conditions and check routes before starting their journey and avoid unnecessary journeys.

Caerphilly County Borough Council’s teams will be on standby to respond to any incidents of fallen trees, debris and flooding.

Call our out of hours team on 01443 875500 to report an incident.
