This flood alert for the River Colne, Holme and Fenay Beck catchments has been issued following persistent rainfall today, 2nd April 2018, causing river levels to rise.

We are closely monitoring the situation and would advise that you keep an eye on the local weather forecast and our river levels online website https://flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/river-and-sea-levels.


Flood Alert issued on 19 Jul 2017 15:43
River Colne, River Holme, Fenay Beck
This flood alert has been issued in response to the potential risk of heavy showers and thunderstorms that could affect areas across West Yorkshire. It is very difficult to predict the precise location of the thunderstorms, but where they occur, we could see flooding from surface water and smaller faster responding rivers impacting roads, homes and businesses. In anticipation of these thunderstorms our staff are monitoring the situation and our field teams are working with partners to ensure that defences are clear of obstructions. Given the speed at which levels in the faster responding rivers may rise, we may not have time to issue all flood warnings before the onset of any flooding. As such, please stay aware of your surroundings and do not put yourself at risk. For a more detailed weather forecast for your area please see the Met Office www.metoffice.gov.uk.
