Flood Warning issued on 16 Feb 2020 23:34
Western Rother
River levels are still high on the Western Rother, but now beginning to fall, after widespread heavy rain from Storm Dennis. Flood impacts will continue to affect fields, gardens, and roads near Station Road, Liss, and Mill Lane, Sheet. We are no longer expecting properties to be affected. Please continue to take care in and around flood affected areas, flood water can contain hidden dangers. Rain has now cleared, and only isolated showers are expected until Thursday 20/2/2020. These showers are unlikely to cause river levels to rise significantly, if at all. River levels may not return to normal until Monday morning (17/2/2020). If you see a blockage affecting the river flow, please call our incident hotline on 0800 80 70 60. We continue to monitor the levels and forecast. We will update this message by 10:00 on 17/2/2020.
