River Colne
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 11:20 on 10/02/2020, or as the situation changes.

River Colne
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 forecast and we expect this to cause the river to continue to rise. Property flooding is possible from around 14:30 today, 09/02/20. Properties around Springbank Road and Queens Square are most at risk. We expect river levels to continue to rise until the early afternoon today, when the rain is forecast to ease into a pattern of showers. 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 19:00 09/02/20, or as the situation changes.
