Lower Torridge Area

Warning no longer in force

The risk of flooding from rivers in the Lower Torridge Area has now reduced, and river levels are falling below levels of concern. No additional flooding to fields and roads is expected today, however there may be standing water seen for several days. Weather conditions today will be largely dry, however another band of frontal rain will cross the region through Thursday, and this could lead to further flooding of low lying land and roads.
