Flood Warning issued on 14 Jan 2020 07:44
River Trent
River levels are forecast to rise at the Keadby river gauge as a result of interaction between spring high tides and a tidal surge. There is a possibility of the surge coinciding with the high tide, which would result in flooding at Alkborough Flats. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is possible around the high tide at around 10am tomorrow morning, 14/01/20. Areas most at risk are the Alkborough Flats where the river is forecast to overtop the lower spillway and result in flooding. We expect river levels to peak on the high tide at 10:00am on 14/01/20 at Keadby. We are closely monitoring the situation. Please avoid contact with flood water and plan driving routes to avoid low-lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated tomorrow morning, 14/01/20, or as the situation changes.
