Severe Flood Warning issued on 20 Jan 2021 19:55
Intense rainfall from Storm Christoph has resulted in rising river levels on the River Mersey at Didsbury today, on 20/01/2021. Consequently, there may be a risk of overtopping at Didsbury flood basin in the early hours of Thursday morning, on 21/01/2021. We currently expect river levels to peak between 6.9-7.5m.
Evacuation plans are now underway for local areas.
