FLOODING is already causing an issue on roads across North Wales as heavy rain batters the region.

The Met Office previously issued a four day yellow weather warning for rain caused by the remnants of two ex-hurricanes.

Natural Resources Wales has issued multiple flood alerts and is urging people to remain vigilant as danger to life can be expected.

Heavy downpour is already affecting parts of North Wales with road closures in place.

Conwy Council tweeted: "The B5106 Llanrwst from Pont Fawr to Gwydyr Castle is closed because of flooding."

The A4086 in Nant Peris is also closed due to flooding as is the A498 Beddgelert.

Mark Greening, Driving Expert from GoCompare issued advice on what to do if you are driving in severe weather conditions.

He said: "As the Met Office has issued flood warnings tonight, the main piece of advice is if you can avoid traveling during a storm, then do. If you are caught out or need to drive, be prepared to pull over if it starts to become hazardous and wait for it to be safe. Do not drive into a flood, and if you can, avoid driving directly through puddles.

"If you have to drive, allow more time so you can take it slow and pause your journey if you get caught in a bad patch. Always keep both hands on the wheel and slow down to maintain control of the car. Winds and rain can be so persistent they can cause your car to drift or veer with no warning, make sure you have the appropriate light settings on, therefore allowing other people to see you more clearly.

"Driving slowly will also increase the distance between you and the driver in front as you may lose visibility. Always reduce your speed slowly and avoid harsh braking or sharp steering. When braking is essential, keep it smooth and gentle - being aware and anticipating the road ahead is the key. If you start to skid or lose control, release the brakes and turn smoothly into the slide (ie if the rear is skidding right, gently steer right).

"If you live in an area that is prone to flooding and you’re unable to move your vehicle, don’t try to start it if your car is submerged. Drain the water if you can and allow the vehicle to dry out as much as possible."
