Flood Alert issued on 23 Nov 2019 05:56
Ea Beck, River Skell
This flood alert remains in force as flood water continues to affect roads and large areas of low-lying land. Further rain is forecast through today, Saturday 23rd November, which will cause rivers to slowly rise through the day. Less rain is now expected than forecast yesterday, therefore we do not expect to see any significant flooding impacts from this rain. With further unsettled weather early next week, and a period of high tides, river levels are likely to remain elevated going into next week. We are continuing our pumping operations in order to increase capacity in washland areas. Please avoid contact with floodwater, stay away from embankments holding back floodwater and plan journeys to avoid low-lying roads. To report any flood impacts call 0800 80 70 60. This message will be updated by 14:00, Saturday 23/11/2019 or as the situation changes.
