NOTE: This content is old - Published: Sunday, Apr 29th, 2012.

Flood warnings have been issued for Rossett and the lower Dee valley areas of Wrexham for Sunday evening after torrential downpours hit the town today.

In Rossett the River Alyn has swelled to a very high level as pictured above by @wrexham follower Debbie Williams (@debbie_1112) – and video below by @l4vem:

The Environment Agency has warned those in parts of the village near Alyn Bridge, including Station Road to be on their guard with water levels expected to rise over Sunday night. We had reports that flooding was occurring around Erddig as well.

Meanwhile in Acrefair we received reports of residents having to use buckets to bale out water in order to protect their homes.

Above is a picture sent in by Sarah Warburton (@4bents) showing a torrent of water flowing down the alley way from Bethania Road all the way down to Llangollen Road.

In the lower Dee valley area river levels at Farndon are rising and are expected to do so for the next 14 – 20 hours.

On the roads our followers have reported flooding on the A541 towards Wrexham coming from Mold near Pontblyddyn as well as from Soughton Hall towards Wrexham.

Earlier in the day our weather station (@wrexhamweather) recorded 1.13 inches of rainfall in the last 24 hours (up to 4pm Sunday). For context, the welsh average rainfall for the whole of April is 3.4inches.
