A YELLOW flood alert has been issued for all rivers across the Isle of Anglesey and North Gwynedd.

Both alerts were issued by Natural Resources Wales (NRW) today (October 28) to Anglesey Catchment and North Gwynedd Catchment at roughly 10.45am and 7am respectively.

Regarding Anglesey, NRW said it covered ‘areas around the rivers across the whole of the island’, while the North Gwynedd region at risk of flooding concerned ‘areas around the rivers of North West Wales, from Abergwyngregyn to Aberdaron’.

It added: "In addition to the area detailed, some localised flooding problems may result from surface water. River levels are above normal.”

At the yellow alert level, which means ‘flooding is possible’ rather than expected or potentially severe, NRW advises the public to:

• Be prepared to act on their flood plan.

• Prepare a flood kit of essential items (e.g. copies of home insurance documents, wind-up battery radio, first aid kit, torch with spare batteries – full list here: www.naturalresources.wales/flooding/preparing-your-home-business-or-farm-for-a-flood/?lang=en).

• Monitor water levels and the flood forecast on the NRW website (www.naturalresources.wales/?lang=en).

It also encourages farmers to move livestock and equipment away from areas likely to flood and for people to avoid walking, cycling or driving through floods.
