View attachment 727080 Cars parked at Cartmel Racecourse . The runners doing the 80k ultra run, will get even wetter feet getting to them when they get back. What a day to run 50 miles over 12 hrs in the lakes.
Newcastle Emlyn and Cardigan both shut - floods. The Teifi has swamped nearly all her bridges. Trees down everywhere.
Llechryd bridge - can you spot it? Not even the sides showing! It is at right angles pretty much to the back of the car...
The worst weather here in west wales for nearly 30 years. Nearly all of the towns and villages along the Teifi Valley have been affected by flooding. Carmarthern is a no go area because water has overflowed over the flood defence. One person between New Castle Emlyn and Carmarthen has been killed due to his car was caught in a landslide. More rain tomorrow morning again.
From what i saw on fb, the river at Llechryd Bridge has risen around 10ft since this morning, and it's only going to get worse as the water from our end of the Teifi reaches down there in the next few days.
