@metoffice yellow warning for wind still in place so please drive carefully.

14.30 Sunday

Swansea Council's highways team responded to well over 70 calls on Saturday night and Sunday morning, fielding reports of flooding and trees blown down in high winds due to Storm Dennis.

Six teams were on duty, including a JCB, gully clearance machines and mechanical brushes.

Roads closed due to the adverse weather included the A4118 at Oxwich, the A4067 Glais to Pontardawe and Birchgrove Road.

A number of locations in Glais, Clydach, Ynystawe and the Swansea Enterprise Park were also affected by flood water.

Council highways and trees teams also responded to incidents in Dyfatty Street, Nantong Way, Cockett Road, Heol Las, Ynys Allan Road, Pant Lasau Road, Bryn y Mor Road, Gowerton, Swansea Road, Llangyfelach and West Street, Gorseinon.

Current position: 

A landslip has closed the road between Landimore and Cheriton on Gower and is not expected to be open before tomorrow. It's hoped  Ynyspenllwch Road will re-open later today if water subsides sufficiently.

All other roads are open, though drivers are advised to look out for localised flooding. The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for wind that's expected to affect the Swansea area overnight and into tomorrow morning.

Thank you to our residents for their support and patience. Please go safe.
