Flood Alert issued on 13 Jul 2018 21:36
River Brent
Heavy rain has been falling in the area over the past hour. This has caused rivers and streams to rise. The main area of concern is currently the Wembley and Tokyngton area where river levels have risen the most. There is likely to be flooding to low lying land and roads close to the river this evening on Friday 13 July. Flooding from surface water, where water gathers and flows off road surfaces, could also occur. We expect the river to remain high this evening but should start to recede as the heavy rainfall passes. No flooding to properties is currently expected. We are constantly monitoring river levels and have staff on standby to attend to any blockages in the river. This message will be updated tomorrow morning or earlier if the situation changes.
