Flood Warning issued on 19 Dec 2019 14:16
Flooding is expected on Thursday afternoon.
Heavy rain falling in the East Devon area is causing the River Coly to rise.
Flooding is expected from 2:30pm today. Properties and low lying areas around the White Hart Inn and Colyvale Caravan Park at Colyford will start to flood first. River levels will be at their highest between 2:30pm and 5pm. The ford at Farway, upstream of Colyton, may be impassable.
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 the situation throughout the day and this message will be updated as the situation changes.
