Property flooding is expected. River levels are rising on the River Cherwell as a result of heavy rainfall. Therefore, flooding (of property) is possible overnight. We expect flooding to affect the Williamscot Road. Peak levels will be similar to the flooding in July 2007. No further rainfall is forecast tonight (14/11/2019) with a few showers tomorrow. We expect river levels to remain high over the coming days. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff have been in the area clearing weed/trash screens. Please move family, pets and valuables to safety and avoid contact with flood water. This message will be updated tomorrow morning, 15/11/2019, or as the situation changes.
