We have only been collating detailed flood messages since May 2017.
Each Flood Warning may have multiple updates. The messages listed below may therefore be greater than the number of alerts detailed in the Flood Warning table above.
Flood Warning issued on 10 Feb 2020 03:31
River levels have now peaked and are beginning to fall. Further scattered rainfall is forecast overnight and into Monday (10/02/2020). However we expect the risk of flooding to reduce as we do not anticipate any significant river response.
We urge residents to remain vigilant and avoid walking and driving through low-lying land or near local watercourses. Our incident room is open and we are monitoring the situation closely. We will update this message by 11:30 on 10/02/2020, or as the situation changes.
Flood Warning issued on 9 Feb 2020 12:52
River levels have risen as a result of persistent heavy rainfall overnight and this morning, 09/02/20, due to Storm Ciara. A further heavy band of rain is causing a sharp river response and we may already be seeing flood impacts in the area. Areas most at risk are properties around St. Andrews Road, Town Crescent, Town Avenue, Town Terrace and Bradley Mills Lane. We expect river levels to continue to rise until the mid afternoon today, 09/02/20. To report property flooding please call our incident hotline on 0800 80 70 60. 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 20:45 09/02/20, or as the situation changes.
