Flooding causing havoc for motorists on Co Armagh roads

Dungannon Road Portadown

Heavy rain and subsequent flooding is causing havoc for motorists across Co Armagh this morning (Wednesday).

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for the entire eastern half of Northern Ireland, encompassing the whole of Armagh.

Although the warning is no longer in place, the heavy rain has left behind surface water, which is causing the problems this morning.

The main image currently shows the state of play on the Dungannon Road in Portadown but there are reports of flooding in parts of Armagh city and more rural areas.

Elsewhere, children at a local school had an early home time after a roof started leaking.

Parents of pupils attending Moyallon Primary were contacted and told to collect them.

The rain is expected to keep coming right through the afternoon and into the evening.

It’s not looking much better for the rest of the week and into the weekend – Friday, perhaps the best day on offer until the following weekend where temperatures are set to rise to around 18 degrees.
