Flood Alert issued on 27 Oct 2019 01:47
Butts Drain, Barrow Beck, East Halton Beck
Over the last 48 hours we have seen heavy rainfall in the Humber Tributaries catchment area. This means that rivers flowing into the Humber are now high, which will lead to flooding of low lying land and roads close to the river. No further rainfall is forecast over the next 24 hours but we expect rivers to remain high throughout the next few days. Our forecasts indicate that flooding to properties isn't likely and therefore flood warnings are not expected to be issued. We are constantly monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated Sunday or as the situation changes.
