Flood Alert issued on 16 Dec 2018 00:59
Water levels in the River Wallington are rising. The last 12 hours have seen intense rainfall, with 26mm of rain recorded in Worlds End.
In the next few hours, River Wallington water levels may come close to the top of the defence wall in the centre of Wallington village. High tide at Portsmouth is forecast at 05:39. For around an hour at high tide, the river may not drain as effectively, causing an additional local increase in level in the lower village near the Cob and Pen pub. No further rain is forecast this morning which means that levels will fall after high tide. We recommend that flood protection is installed as a precautionary measure. If you have submersible pumps please check them. Once installed, please keep away from the river. River levels for North Fareham Weir can be viewed on www.gov.uk
This Flood Alert will be updated at 12:00 on Sunday 16/12/18 or sooner, if we think property flooding will occur.
