Lower River Tees and estuarine tributaries

Flood alert

River levels remain high on the Lower River Tees and its estuarine tributaries as a result of heavy rainfall yesterday and today, 20/01/21. Flooding of riverside footpaths, low lying land and roads is expected to continue this evening, 20/01/21 and tomorrow, 21/01/21. Further rainfall is forecast across the catchment, with the possibility of heavier spells of rain this evening and therefore we expect river levels to remain high. We are closely monitoring the situation and will issue Flood Warnings if necessary. Our incident response staff are out on the ground checking defences and clearing any blockages from rivers. Phase 1 and 2 closure of Yarm floodgates took place on Tuesday afternoon. Please avoid using low lying footpaths and roads near local watercourses. This message will be updated by 09:30 on 21/01/21, or as the situation changes.
