The yellow warning from the Met Office launches at 9am this morning (Thursday, November 14) and is set to stay in place until 3am tomorrow (Friday, November 15).

Forecasters have warned that further homes and businesses could be flooded and fast flowing or deep floodwater is possible- causing a 'danger to life'.

Spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures and some communities may be cut off by flooded roads.
