Please avoid the roads and streets around the river and canal in the city centre. If you are having difficulties here are a few numbers to assist: Flood helpline: 0300 2000 100. Newry & Mourne Council: 028 3031 3031. In an emergency call 999. Urging the local community to exercise caution, SDLP Councillor Kevin McAteer told Newry Times, “Can I ask those who encounter any flooding to be careful and if they can please report it and it will be dealt with as soon as possible.”
