Flood Warning issued on 19 Oct 2021 22:48
Flooding is expected on Tuesday night and the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Over the last 24 hours we have seen heavy rainfall in the South Devon area, which we are expecting to clear by midnight on Tuesday. This is causing the River Avon to rise and the river is forecast to continue rising throughout Tuesday night and into the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Properties and low lying areas in South Brent, Avonwick and Aveton Gifford will start to flood first.
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.
We will be closely monitoring river levels throughout Tuesday night. This message will be updated on Wednesday morning, or as the situation changes.
