Flood Warning issued on 14 Nov 2020 17:13
Paxcroft Brook, Lambrok Stream
River levels have risen at the Trowbridge Paxcroft river gauge as a result of heavy persistent rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is possible this evening and tomorrow 15/11/20. We believe there is a possibility of flooding for Heather Shaw Road and West Ashton Road on the Paxcroft Brook and riverside properties at Southwick, Lambrok Close, Berkeley Road, Acacia Crescent and Albion Drive on the Lambrok Stream. River levels have reacted quickly to this aftermoon to the heavy rainfall. Flood water could be deep and fast flowing, and therefore pose a risk to life. We expect river levels to remain high over the next few days and react to further rainfall. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are clearing weed screens. Please avoid low lying roads near rivers which may be flooded and check for local road closures. This message will be updated Sunday 15/11/20, or as the situation changes.
