Flood Warning issued on 10 Feb 2020 07:15
Oakenshaw Beck
River levels remain high but are now falling following persistent heavy rainfall due to Storm Ciara. Whilst further showers are forecast throughout today, 10/02/20, we do not expect these to cause significant impacts to river levels, which should continue to fall. Consequently we expect the risk of flooding to reduce throughout the day, and will review the continuing need for this warning once the river drops below levels of concern. To report flooding impacts, please call our incident hotline on 0800 80 70 60. We continue to closely monitor the situation from our incident room. Please see GOV.UK for a 5 day flood forecast, 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 12:00 10/02/20, or as the situation changes.

River levels are slowly rising as a result of heavy rainfall associated with storm Ciara. Consequently, river levels are expected to peak overnight tonight (9/02/2020). Areas most at risk are properties along Oakenshaw at Agbrigg. Further showers are forecast over the next 24 hours and we expect river levels to remain high overnight and in to the morning of 10/02/2020. Wakefield Council have confirmed the pumping station at Agbrigg is operating. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are checking defences and closely monitoring the forecast. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated by 04:15 on 10/02/2020, or as the situation changes.
