Flood Warning issued on 9 Feb 2020 08:21
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. Consequently, flooding of property is possible over the next hour today, 09/02/20.
Areas most at risk are properties on Burnley Road. We expect river levels to continue to rise until approximately midday today.
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. Halifax Road at Callis Bridge has been affected by surface water flooding, so please take care if driving in the area. We will update this message by 16:20 09/02/20, or as the situation changes.

Flood Warning issued on 17 Mar 2019 02:23
River levels have now fallen below the flood risk threshold.
However, a Flood Alert also remains in force for the wider area, so 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 00:07
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 are falling but further rainfall is expected through the night with heavier bursts in some locations across the Upper River Calder. The heaviest of the rain is expected between 0600 and 0800 on 22 October. This rain will cause the River Calder to rise again, although not to the levels we saw on Saturday 21 October. We have teams in the field inspecting flood defences and we will continue to monitor the forecasts overnight.
