Historical Flood Warning Messages for this Area


Flood Warning issued on 17 Mar 2019 02:25
River Calder
River levels have now fallen below the flood risk threshold. However, a Flood Alert also remains in force for the wider area, as flooding may still affect roads and low lying land. Further showers are forecast into the morning of Sunday 17 March, but we do not currently expect these to have a significant impact on river levels. We continue to monitor the situation from the Leeds Incident Room. Please plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded.


Flood Warning issued on 17 Mar 2019 01:24
River Calder
Levels have peaked and are beginning to fall. The rain has cleared the catchment, but the threat of showers remains into the early hours of Sunday morning. Consequently, the risk of flooding is reducing and we do not currently expect the forecast showers to cause the rivers to rise to levels which could result in property flooding. Our incident response staff are closely monitoring the forecast from the Leeds Incident Room. Please see the GOV.UK website for a 5 day flood forecast. This message will be updated in 8 hours, or as the situation changes.

River levels continue to remain high as a result of today’s prolonged rainfall. The rainfall is forecast to continue through Saturday and into the evening, but river levels are predicted to subside over the course of the evening but may remain high before they begin to fall again. We have had reports of roads flooded in this area, so please avoid contact with flood water and plan your routes carefully and continue to action any flood plan. The Leeds Incident Room is open and we are continuing to monitor the situation. This message will be updated in 8 hours or as the situation changes.
