A storm surge has reached north Wales after leaving a trail of chaos along the Welsh coastline.
About 30 properties were flooded in Cardigan where a pregnant woman was rescued and some people trapped in their homes.
Dozens of roads are closed and the rail network is badly affected around Wales.
Four severe flood warnings - where life may be at risk -remain in place in Flintshire, Barmouth in Gwynedd, and in the Usk Estuary at Newport.
