Flood Warning issued on 18 Feb 2020 08:19
River Trent
River levels remain high at the Yoxall river level gauge, as a result of the heavy and persistent rainfall over the weekend. River levels are beginning to fall and are forecast to continue to fall today, 18/02/20. Consequently, the risk of flooding to property, roads and farmland still remains. The weather forecast is for bands of rain and scattered showers for the next few days. We are continuing to closely monitor the situation, and our incident response staff are actively checking river levels and the weather forecasts. Please avoid using low lying footpaths and bridges near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated later today, 18/02/20, or if the situation changes.
