Whole town is underwater and homes are evacuated as Storm Callum floods hit with nearly six inches of rain falling in just 24 hours



A small town in southeastern Wales was turned into an island today after torrential rain brought in by Storm Callum led to river banks bursting and flooding the streets.
Cars left completely submerged in water were abandoned by owners and sandbags had to be wedged against Crickhowell residents' front doors to stop the floods from getting inside.
Firefighters were forced to stand on walls to avoid the floods as they pumped water from the local pub.
An amber warning for rain was put in place by The Met Office today for parts of south Wales, with flooding expected to cause 'a danger to life'. 
People in the surrounding area were told to evacuate their homes overnight when more than a months worth of rain fell in 48 hours.
