We've had a call to say there's bad flooding on the #A2 #Bangor Road between Larch Hill and the #Cultra Station Road (near the @FolkTransport museum). We're hearing it's like a river in places heading towards #Belfast— BBCNI Travel (@BBCNITravel) November 12, 2019
We're getting texts to say there's severe flooding on the A29 Moneysharvan Road at the junction with the #Kilrea Road, outside #Maghera. It's apparently passable with care but drivers are travelling in single file in the middle of the road— BBCNI Travel (@BBCNITravel) November 12, 2019
