Lower River Ancholme

Flood Alert

Over the weekend we saw heavy rainfall in the River Ancholme area as a result of Storm Dennis. This means that levels in the River Ancholme have risen which has led 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 is not likely and therefore flood warnings are not expected to be issued. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. We are constantly monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens. This message will be updated during Tuesday 18th February, or as the situation changes.

This information last updated 4:51pm, Monday 17th February.
