Flood Alert issued on 17 Feb 2020 16:51
River Ancholme
Over the weekend we saw heavy rainfall in the River Ancholme area as a result of Storm Dennis. This means that levels in the River Ancholme have risen which has led to flooding of low lying land and roads close to the river. We expect the river to remain high throughout the next few days. Our forecasts indicate that flooding to properties is not likely and therefore flood warnings are not expected to be issued. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. We are constantly monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens.

River Ancholme
The heavy rainfall that fell throughout Thursday and Friday has caused river levels to rise in the River Ancholme catchment. No rainfall is forecast for Sunday 10th November, however further showers are possible in the next few days. River levels will remain high throughout the next few days and could rise again later this afternoon due the effect of tide lock. This is where the River Ancholme is unable to discharge into the Humber Estuary. We are aware of a breach on the left bank of the North Kelsey Beck and we are actively monitoring the breach location. We are working to develop a plan to pump the water back into the surrounding river channels. It may be several days before levels in the River Ancholme fall sufficiently enough for the water to be pumped back successfully into the rivers. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers. This message will be updated as the situation changes.


Flood Alert issued on 9 Nov 2019 19:10
River Ancholme
The heavy and persistent rainfall that fell throughout Thursday and Friday morning has caused river levels to rise in the River Ancholme catchment. High levels in the Ancholme are expected to result in tidelock conditions from about 6.30pm on Saturday 9 November and again at 6am and 6.30pm on Sunday 10 November.
