River Fowey
Following overnight rain high river levels resulted in flooding of areas behind defences. While river levels are falling and will continue to fall throughout the day, ponding water trapped in low lying areas will drain slowly and remains a hazard. Please co-operate with Emergency Services who are supporting the communities in these areas. Localised showers are forecast for Saturday through Sunday. Further frontal rainfall is forecast overnight Sunday 20th into Monday 21st December. We are working with the Met Office and monitoring weather and river level forecasts and will update the situation on Sunday morning.

River Fowey
Heavy and intense rain yesterday and overnight has caused river levels at Restormel and Wainsford to rise rapidly. River levels are currently peaking but further heavy bands of rain are possible during the early hours of this morning which may result in river levels rising again. Riverside properties at Trekeivesteps, Trago Mills, Parkway Timber, Lanhydrock and Lostwithiel will start to flood first. The high tide at 8:30 this morning may also cause the river to back up leading to further flooding. Flood waters may be deep and fast flowing in these areas. Residents are strongly urged to take action now. Remain safe and be aware of your local surroundings. Take care near the areas of concern and monitor your local weather conditions. We are monitoring river levels and have staff in the area ready to respond as required. This message will be updated by Saturday morning or earlier if the situation changes. River levels can be viewed on our website.
