River Adur West Branch

Warning no longer in force

River levels are still high on the Adur, but have now peaked and are falling through Coolham and Shipley, after Storm Dennis's widespread heavy rain. Flood impacts will ease, but may continue to affect fields, gardens and rural roads, until river levels fall further. Please continue to take care in, and around flood affected areas, flood water can contain hidden dangers. Rain has now cleared, and only isolated showers are expected until Thursday 20/2/2020. These showers are unlikely to cause river levels to rise significantly, if at all, but river levels may not return to normal until Monday afternoon 17/2/2020. Please plan to avoid driving through routes vulnerable to flooding, which may still be affected today. We will continue to monitor the levels and forecast and will re-issue messages if the risk of flooding increases.
