“There is still a degree of uncertainty about what may happen over the coming days as it depends on how much rain falls, when it falls and where it falls. We urge everyone to stay safe, stay calm and stay informed,” he said.

“This is an evolving situation, so please follow the advice of the authorities and stay safe if out on the road. Remember if it’s flooded, forget it.”
