Historical Flood Warning Messages for this Area


Flood Warning issued on 10 Feb 2020 16:14
River Waveney
This message has been issued because there is a possibility of some flooding of homes and businesses for today and tomorrow, Monday 10th and Tuesday 11th February. Water levels continue to remain higher than normal in some places. High water levels may last for a few days until the high tides at Great Yarmouth have passed. This is due to the natural tide locking effect of high tidal waters moving up the rivers from Great Yarmouth that restricts the normal drainage out to sea of the Broads river system at low tide. Areas most at risk are in Belton, Geldeston and Beccles. Roads likely to be affected include Station Road in Geldeston, the A145 and the A146 through Beccles, the A143 at Haddiscoe and St Olaves and the railway line at Haddiscoe. We are not currently expecting the situation to escalate, however further warning messages for this area may be issued. Be ready to take action to protect your property if flooding is expected. We are closely monitoring the situation.
