Storm Dennis swept through Britain on Sunday and the army was drafted in to help with heavy flooding and high winds. Officials warned that this could be "life threatening" in South Wales.
The State Weather Bureau issued a rare red warning for the area, saying it was at risk of "significant flooding effects," including "life-threatening flooding, extensive property flooding, and road closures."
In early Sunday there were almost 200 flood warnings that stretched from the Scottish River Tweed to Cornwall in south-west England.
In Aberdaron, South Wales, winds were recorded at speeds of over 150 km / h.
The Department of Defense had previously deployed troops to West Yorkshire, northern England, which had suffered badly from the Ciara storms last weekend.
"Our armed forces are always ready to assist local authorities and communities whenever they need it," said Defense Secretary Ben Wallace.
British Airways and easyJet confirmed that they had suspended flights while two bodies were pulled from rough seas off the coast of England on Saturday when the storm broke out.
It is believed that one of the men was the subject of a search that was triggered when an LPG tanker reported that one of its crew members was not reported.
He was last seen a few hours earlier.
