Warning no longer in force

Water levels in the River Uck remain high, but are beginning to fall steadily. We no longer consider that there is a risk of flooding to properties in the Buxted area. The catchment received 40 mm of persistent rain today, Sunday 16/02/2020, which is a significant amount in a short period of time. Isolated flooding impacts could still affect fields, rural roads and the gardens of riverside properties through Buxted, near the White Hart pub, and areas around Hempstead Mill. Rain is possible tomorrow, 17/02/2020, but is not expected to increase water levels further. The river will return to normal by Monday afternoon, 17/02/2020. We continue to monitor the levels and forecast. Please plan your travel routes carefully and avoid driving through flood water.

This information last updated 9:53pm, Sunday 16th February.
