Prince Charles plans to meet flood victims in Wales today after Storm Dennis devastation

Storm Dennis impacted more than 1,000 homes and businesses in Rhondda Cynon Taff, South Wales, according to the BBC. Prince Charles will visit the town of Pontypridd which was left submerged after the brutal storm.

He reportedly added the trip to his itinerary.

He will meet the owners of the Clwb y Bont Welsh language club, which was badly hit by the storm.

The Prince was due to visit the Aston Martin factory in St Athan where the first Welsh car was made in November.

One of the other places the Duke of Cornwall will visit is the Marie Curie Hospice in Penarth.

He will also be opening a train-making factory in Newport.

The Prince will also be visiting Cardiff Airport’s British Airways maintenance centre to mark the company’s 100th anniversary.

Wales is still currently in the grips of a recovery operation.

Weather forecasters have said that a month’s worth of rain could have fallen across Wales in 24 hours between Wednesday and Thursday.

It comes as more weather warnings are now in place across the country as a new warning sees swathes of the UK under a yellow wind warning on Saturday.

Over the next three days Met Office weather warnings for rain and wind are in place.

A new weather warning has been issued for much of Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England on Saturday.

The yellow warning is active between 6am and 10pm, and some regions are forecast to witness winds up to 75mph.

The Met Office are currently forecasting “unsettled” weather patterns over the next few days.
