Flood Warning issued on 9 Feb 2020 08:05
River levels have risen as a result of persistent heavy rainfall from Storm Ciara. Although river levels are currently levelling off, a further heavy pulse of rain is forecast later this morning, 09/02/20. We expect this to cause a sharp river response, raising levels higher than just seen in the first peak. Consequently, flooding of property is possible from around 08:30, 09/02/20. Areas most at risk are along Stubbing Holme Road.
The Hebden Bridge sirens have been sounded.
We expect river levels to continue to rise until midday today. We are closely monitoring the situation.
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 16:05 09/02/20, or as the situation changes.

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.
