Flood Warning issued on 10 Feb 2020 12:10
River Don
This warning remains in force due to the high spring tides this morning, 10/02/20, combined with impacts from Storm Ciara. Levels are currently peaking at Kirk Bramwith and will continue to slowly fall throughout the day. Because levels are now falling, the risk of property flooding has reduced. Whilst further scattered showers are forecast throughout the rest of today, 10/02/20, we do not anticipate a significant river level response from this. This message will be updated by 20:00 10/02/20 or as the situation changes. We are monitoring this situation closely from our incident room. To report impacts please call 0800 80 70 60.


Flood Warning issued on 10 Feb 2020 06:49
River Don
This warning is being issued in anticipation of the high spring tides this morning, 10/02/20, combined with impacts from Storm Ciara. These tides may see levels rise to the height of the barrier banks in this area, and as a precaution while we mobilise field teams to inspect the site, we are issuing this warning. If inspections show that river levels are expected to overtop, we will re-issue this warning to ensure everyone is informed of the need to take action. For now, please prepare to act on your flood plan: we believe the likelihood is low. This message will be updated by 16:00 10/02/20. If the situation worsens we will update everyone directly. We are monitoring this situation closely from our incident room. To report impacts please call 0800 80 70 60.

River levels have continued to fall overnight. Rain is moving across South Yorkshire today (14/11/2019), which will be followed by showers into tomorrow.

The River Don is forecast to peak at Doncaster between 06:00-09:00am tomorrow. Due to the forecast and large amounts of water in the low lying areas of the catchment, this flood warning will remain in force.

Flood Warning issued on 2 Oct 2019 17:35
River Don
River levels have risen as a result of high spring tides coinciding with this weeks earlier heavy rainfall that is working its way down the river catchment. The next high tide at around 11pm this evening, Wednesday 2nd October, will prevent water moving downstream therefore maintaining high river levels in the Kirk Bramwith area. Spring tide are dropping away, as the week progresses we will see a reduced tidal influence on the river levels at the bottom of the catchment. If you spot a problem with a flood embankment or if you are aware of properties flooding or likely to flood, please call our Incident Hotline on 0800 80 70 60. We will update this message in 8 hours or if the situation changes.
