Flood Warning issued on 9 Feb 2020 09:11
River Spen, Blacup Beck
River levels have risen as a result of persistent heavy rainfall overnight due to Storm Ciara. A further heavy pulse of rain is causing a sharp river response and we may already be seeing flood impacts in the area. We expect river levels to continue to rise until the early afternoon today, 09/02/20. To report property flooding please call our incident hotline on 0800 80 70 60. We are closely monitoring the situation from our incident room. Please put your flood plan into action and see GOV.UK for a 5 day flood forecast. Please plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded, and avoid contact with flood water. We will update this message by 17:10 09/02/20, or as the situation changes.
