More heavy rain is expected to hit the north west today after a weekend that saw parts of the region severely effected by flooding

An elderly man had to be rescued from his home in Clady on Saturday night with an emergency team using a digger to get to the property after the Finn burst its banks over a huge area.

The village and nearby Castlefin were among the worst affected in the border region.

Donegal also had a number of alerts out for motorists in the country, the bridge after the rivers Finn and Foyle meet in Lifford was closed due to high water levels.

In Derry gallons of mud laden water poured into properties in Creggan as a result of heavy rain.

The Met Office have a further weather warning in place for the north.

“Rain, heavy at times, will spread eastwards across Northern Ireland on Monday afternoon, clearing during the late afternoon or early evening.

“In view of recent wet weather, please be aware that this additional rainfall brings the possibility of further localised flooding and disruption to transport.”
