Up to 1,000 homes and businesses in Rhondda Cynon Taf are believed to have been hit by flooding in the wake of Storm Dennis.

The council said 537 houses and at least 300 commercial properties have been flooded after the latest downpour with the total expected to rise to at least 1,000.

The rainfall caused a small landslide behind the Rhondda Cynon Taf Council headquarters in Clydach Vale which forced council staff and a cabinet meeting to be moved to different buildings on the site on Thursday, February 20.

A statement from the council said staff were moved only as a precaution and following an engineer’s assessment it has confirmed there is no danger to the public or property.

More heavy rain has arrived during the clean up from the devastating impact of Storm Dennis which left many areas, including town centres like Pontypridd and Mountain Ash flooded, and caused a large landslide in Tylorstown.

Council staff and fire crews are dealing with a collapsed culvert in Pentre in the Rhondda.

Latest on the flooding in Wales

Highways and cleansing teams along with the fire service are currently pumping water out of the culvert.

Housing and environmental health staff are going door to door to those whose properties have flooded to try to understand the scale of the damage.

Councillor Andrew Morgan said: “It’s another day that crews are busy and staff are busy right across the valley.

“We know the number [of properties affected] is growing day by day as more people inform us what’s happened so we are expecting the number to top probably now 1,000 properties.

“On top of that we had massive damage to infrastructure. At least three possibly four bridges will need to be completely replaced. We have numerous culverts which are collapsing under the sheer force of the water.”

He also said there is "urgent action" to put additional measures in place to deal with issues around river walls.

He added: “All I’d say to the public is, every person we can draft in is being drafted in and we’re currently in discussion with other local authorities who are looking to provide support for Rhondda Cynon Taf.”
