Flood Warning issued on 9 Feb 2020 08:56
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 so property flooding is possible over the next few hours of this morning, 09/02/20.
Areas most at risk are properties in the Cragg Brook area, Burnley Road and Midgely road. Temporary defences have been in place throughout the weekend.
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.
