Flood Warning issued on 2 Nov 2019 16:23
River Waring
Heavy rain has fallen earlier today Saturday 2nd November in the Horncastle area. This is causing the River Waring to rise and is forecast to continue to rise through the rest of Saturday 2nd November. The rising river levels have already caused flooding of low lying land and roads in the Horncastle area, and due to the impact this rain has had on already saturated catchments we now expect properties upstream of Stanhope to be affected from the afternoon of Saturday 2nd November onwards. Low lying properties near the river are most at risk. Remain safe and be aware of your local surroundings. Please avoid contact with flood water. Our staff are out in the area to check the flood defences, clear blockages, and assist the emergency services and council. We will be closely monitoring the situation and this message will be updated as the situation changes.
