North Somerset Area

Flood Alert

Storm Dennis continues to impact the South West. Strong winds and further rainfall are forecast today, Sunday 16/02/2020, adding to the significant amount of rainfall that has already fallen. Catchments are saturated and all rivers are likely to respond to this rainfall. This may bring a risk of flooding to low lying land across the North Somerset area and in particular roads around Wrington and Iwood. Overtopping of the bank downstream of Mendip Mills Weir is not currently forecast at this time. Field teams are out clearing debris screens and checking flood defences. Incident teams are monitoring river levels very closely. Please stay aware in case further flood warnings are issued this weekend. This message will be updated tomorrow, Monday 17/02/20, or as the situation changes.

This information last updated 10:56am, Sunday 16th February.
