Another flooding update

Latest update on flooding issued by Denbighshire County Council at 11.10am says:
Residents in parts of Ruthin have been evacuated from their homes as the threat of flooding increases.

Parts of the town have already seen flooding occur and there are potentially up to 400 properties at risk. A rest centre has been opened at Ruthin Leisure Centre.

This is in addition to the problems being experienced in St Asaph where flooding has been widespread. A rest centre has operated at the city's leisure centre since the early hours of this morning.

The flooding has also had a major effect on transport in the region.


All services operating near normally except:

51 (Rhyl-Denbigh): not currently running south of St Asaph.

X94 (Barmouth - Wrexham): issues at Corwen preventing a through service (see below). Awaiting further information.


Ser 1/2 Ruthin - Mold

Operating as near to normal as possible but not diverting via the usual villages

Corwen area services
(GHA 5/X5/village services plus Arriva X94)

No services operating by GHA. Arriva X94 unlikely to be available owing to Corwen flooding.

Ser 14 Denbigh - Mold

This was operating near normally via the main roads only but the road has now been closed and therefore cannot now operate.

Ser 62 Denbigh - Nantglyn/Llansannan

Not operating

Villages south of Ruthin
(Clawdd, Betws etc into Ruthin)

Not operating

X52/X50 Rhyl - Denbigh - Ruthin - Wrexham

M & H Coaches

Ser 6 Denbigh Town and Llannefydd

Reported as operating normally

Ser 10 Bodfari - Tremeirchion - Rhyl

Subject to delays. Cannot serve whole route

Ser 76 (Denbigh-Llandyrnog-Ruthin-Graigfechan)

Subject to delays. Service is avoiding Gellifor and may have to divert away from other villages.

Other Services

All remaining services and those operating via revised routes subject to some delay. Note that the volume of general traffic on main roads and the number of car breakdowns adding to issues for bus services.
