A spokesperson for the Department for Infrastructure said:
“Heavy rainfall on Saturday evening and into Sunday morning resulted in flooding in a number of areas across the north west. DfI operational teams, who had been on a heightened state of alert in conjunction with other multi-agency partners, responded to almost 300 calls to the flooding incident line and provided assistance to affected residents/businesses throughout the night.
"It is estimated that over 8000 sandbags were deployed. Whilst waters levels have receded at affected locations, DfI and multi-agency partners are still in a high state of alert across all areas and we continue to prepare for a further rain warning issued for Sunday with pre-emptive measures ongoing including the replenishment of sandbag stocks and checking of drainage infrastructure.
"The Flooding Incident Line number is 0300 2000 100 for anyone to report and seek assistance if flooding occurs.”
