Storm Alex has landed on Merseyside, drenching the region in rain and battering it with high winds.
The Met Office still has weather warnings in place for the area due to the conditions, which are expected to continue into Sunday.
Warnings have also been issued by organisations including local coastguard teams as emergency services attempt to advise people away from danger.
This afternoon, the impact of the rain has already been felt.
Crashes on busy roads have led to issues on the St Helens Linkway and the M62 and driving is only likely to get more difficult as the rain continues to fall.
This blog will have the latest updates from around Merseyside and the surrounding area as Storm Alex continues its sweep across the region.
