FLINTSHIRE County Council are preparing for the threat of flooding amid the thunderstorm warning in place today (August 2). 

Yesterday the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms, with flooding and damage to buildings expected. 

Up to 40mm of rain could fall within a couple of hours, with risks of floods highly likely. 

Wrexham and Flintshire were hit by thunderstorms early in July, which led to flooding incidents across the area. 

Roads were closed, shops were flooded and bars even had to shut their doors.

However, ahead of the incoming bad weather, which is scheduled between 9am and 7pm today, the authority say they have resources available to deal with any issues. 

A spokesperson for Flintshire County Council said:

"Should residents have any concerns about flooding, they can prepare by viewing our website https://www.flintshire.gov.uk/en/Resident/Emergency-Planning/Floods.aspx, or by reporting the incident through our Contact Centre on 01352 701234."
