Flooding In Holt And Farndon (Picture Special)

NOTE: This content is old - Published: Saturday, Jan 4th, 2014.

Yesterday parts of North Wales were hit by severe weather and heavy rainfall. 

Wrexham managed to escape the worst of the bad weather, however coastal parts of North Wales, including Barmouth and Rhyl have suffered heavy flooding.

Just up the road in Chester, the River Dee broke its banks, causing flooding in parts of the city.

Due to the rivers banks breaking, parts of Holt and Farndon have also been left flooded. One person took to Twitter yesterday to say that the River Dee had ‘well and truly’ broken its banks, and that the river is unrecognisable.

We popped down earlier this morning to see the damage caused in the area as a result of the heavy rainfall.

Although the weather is a lot drier (if not chillier!) today, there is a large amount of water in the area. However the MET Office have also issued an amber weather warning for ice over the next 24 hours.

Below are some of the scenes from this morning.
