Flood Warning issued on 11 Oct 2017 13:23
Town Beck
Heavy rainfall which has fallen over the last 12 hours in the Ulverston and Dragley Beck catchments, has meant that Town Beck and Dragley Beck levels are rising rapidly. The main area of concern are properties and low lying areas around the Buckston Place Car Park and Morecambe road confluence between Town Beck and Dragley Beck. Also areas of concern are the Outcast area and parts of South Ulverston adjacent to Dragley Beck. Residents are strongly urged to take action now. Remain safe and be aware of your local surroundings. The current forecast is for rainfall to ease and fall away later this afternoon. We will be closely monitoring the situation throughout the day and we will update this message as the situation changes.
