STORM Dennis has hit several communities in the area with flooding, with police warning to only travel where it is absolutely essential.

Severe flooding in parts of Llandeilo and Llandovery has caused several routes to be shut completely.

A spokesman for Cross Hands Neighbourhood Policing Team said: "Severe flooding in parts of Llandeilo and Llandovery today due to storm Dennis.

"The B4300 near Golden Grove is currently shut with a large flood."

Advice from the council says: "Check weather forecasts and warnings on the Met Office website.

"Check flood guidance and updates on the Natural Resources Wales website.

"If your property is in imminent threat of flooding, call 01267 234567 (or 0300 333 2222 out of hours) to enquire about sandbags. Distribution of sandbags will be prioritised to those most in need, and are in limited supply. We will endeavour to respond to most requests but there may be some delay, particularly for the more widespread or large scale events."
