Home owners in Pembrokeshire have been hit by flooding after a day of heavy rain.
Pembroke Dock and Milford Haven were worst hit as fire crews attended 30 flooding incidents on Monday evening.
Most call-outs were to flooded houses although two were to commercial properties including a fast food restaurant in Haverfordwest.
Another alert was issued on Monday night for the north Wales coast from the Dee estuary to eastern Anglesey.
However, there were no reports of any serious flooding incidents in north Wales.
Flood alerts had been issued on Monday for the western Cleddau and north and west Pembrokeshire, and residents of Carmarthenshire and Swansea were also told to expect heavy rain.
Over a few hours 32mm (1.25in) of rain fell at Llanfyrnach, and 29mm (1.14in) at Pembrey Sands.
Incidents of localised flooding around Pembrokeshire were reported throughout Monday with Treffgarne and Wolfscastle among the worst affected areas.
Pembrokeshire council said blocked gulleys were a factor in many cases.
Mid and West Wales fire service said they were mainly called out to pump water help clear drains.
BBC weather presenter Behnaz Akhgar said Tuesday would be quieter although there would be a few scattered showers, especially in the evening.
"Many of the showers will be across south and west Wales, and could be heavy with thunder," she said.
"Elsewhere it'll be dry and fine with decent sunny spells to enjoy."
No new flood alerts had been issued for Wales by the Environment Agency on Tuesday.
People seeking the latest information and flood warnings in force should go to the Environment Agency's website or call Floodline on 0845 9 88 11 88.
