Flooding causes havoc for Magherafelt motorists

Motorists have been caught out by flooded roads in the Magherafelt area.

Heavy rain led to dangerous driving conditions in some areas, as this video shows.

Taken by a passer-by, it shows drivers having to use extreme caution as they navigate a large flooded area near Meadowland Shopping Centre in Magherafelt this morning (Sunday, February 26).

The weather forecast for the rest of today is for cloud with outbreaks of rain, which will be heavy at times. It will become windy with southwest gales along Irish Sea coasts, and perhaps a more widespread westerly gale as it turns brighter, colder and more showery.
