Flood Warning issued on 9 Feb 2020 09:29
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. The area most at risk is Brookfoot Mills.
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. We will update this message by 17:30 09/02/20, or as the situation changes.
Flood Warning issued on 17 Mar 2019 02:39
Levels have peaked and are beginning to fall. The rain has cleared the catchment, but the threat of showers remain 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.
