Responding to Storm Eunice


The Met Office Red Warning for high winds brought by storm Eunice was lifted at midday today, however an Amber Warning will remain in place until 9pm tonight.

The council's emergency management procedures were put into action yesterday and today, in order to help keep the public and the workforce safe, and to try to keep the disruption caused by Storm Eunice to a minimum.

Frontline workers were out there providing help and support to vulnerable residents, making sure these vital services continued. Llanishen and Eastern leisure centres are acting as ‘touchdown points' for the Council's mobile workforce to use during the course of the day and into this evening.

Although the Amber Warning is expected to be lifted tonight, the forecast for the weekend is for further unsettled weather, with heavy rains showers and fresh breezes predicted. The Cycle Ready For Spring event that was due to take place at Victoria Park tomorrow has been postponed, and an alternative date is being finalised. The events at the STAR Hub on Saturday, 26thFebruary, and Cardiff Castle on Saturday, 5thMarch 5th, are both still scheduled to take place.
