We have only been collating detailed flood messages since May 2017.
Each Flood Warning may have multiple updates. The messages listed below may therefore be greater than the number of alerts detailed in the Flood Warning table above.
Flood Warning issued on 17 Feb 2020 17:26
Flooding is expected on the Iford Bridge Park Home site. The electricity supply will be cut on the site for safety reasons. This power outage will be from about 7 pm this evening and may last until into Tuesday morning. The Emergency Services are advising residents on the park to make alternative arrangements for overnight accommodation. Alternatively a rest centre is being set up at the Church Hall opposite the park. Residents are requested to take themselves, pets, medication and anything they need for the night to this location. Please check in at the Church Hall to notify the Flood Warden if you plan to make your own arrangements.
Please move all cars to high ground, but please do not restrict access to Old Bridge Road.
We don’t think that homes will flood, but water is expected on site. An alternative pedestrian access gate is located at the back of the site near the car park.

River levels have risen at the Throop river gauge as a result of recent prolonged heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding could occur from this afternoon and over night on 17/2/20. We believe there is a possibility of flooding for Iford Bridge Home Park. Peak levels will be higher than the flooding in Dec 2019.
We expect river levels to remain high for the next 24hrs. Our incident response staff are liaising with emergency services and in contact with community flood wardens and volunteers. The rear pedestrian access gate is being opened. Please activate your personal flood plan. Please turn off gas, electricity and water and can owners with property flood resilience equipment install it now. We advise that residents move vehicles to higher ground. We expect flood water to be on site and affecting main access.
This message will be updated this evening, 17/2/20, or as the situation changes.
Stay aware if other warnings are issued. We are closely monitoring the situation.
