Uck
The River Uck is high and rising. It is estimated that in only a few hours of Sunday afternoon, about a month's worth of rain (50mm) fell at the top of the Uck catchment. From 21:00 01/08/2021 flooding will affect fields, rural roads, gardens and riverside properties through Buxted, near the White Hart pub and areas around Hempstead Mill on Hempstead Lane, Uckfield. Light rain should clear the area by 23:00 and the river should begin to fall by 02:00 Monday 2/8/2021 in Buxted. Only small amounts of rain are forecast next week so the river should return to normal Monday afternoon. Please take proactive action to help reduce the impact of flooding. Flood protection products are recommended to be installed, if you have them. We will continue to monitor the river levels and forecasts. We will update this message by 10:00 02/08/2021

Uck
River levels in Buxted have fallen from their peak, but remain higher than normal. Rain is forecast Monday. The river will rise again late Monday afternoon and evening (28/12/2020), but not as high as Sunday, because we expect less rain than Storm Bella. Additional flooding of properties is not expected today, unless rain is heavier than predicted. A dry Tuesday should allow flood impacts to ease. But with potentially heavy rainfall on Wednesday and Thursday, please stay prepared for the risk of flooding to return this week. Riverside properties are encouraged to keep flood protection products installed as a precaution, if you have them. We continue to monitor the levels and forecast. We will update this message by 14:00 29/12/2020.
