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.
