Lower Nene

Flood Alert

Over the last few days we have seen heavy rainfall in the River Nene catchment area. This means that the River Nene has now risen throughout the catchment, which will lead to flooding of low lying land and roads close to the river. We expect the river to remain high throughout the next few days. Our forecasts indicate that flooding to properties and transport networks is possible and therefore flood warnings remain in force for the B1040 and North Bank Road. We are constantly monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens. 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 on Monday 18 November, or as the situation changes.

This information last updated 9:02am, Sunday 17th November.
