River Axe Area

Flood Alert

Heavy bands of rain are forecast to impact the area until the middle of the evening on Tuesday the 18th of December. Based on this forecast we are expecting the River Axe and tributaries to reach Flood Alert criteria with the rivers peaking late Tuesday evening. The catchment is already wet and this may result in flooding to low lying land and roads close to the river. We have staff in the area checking for and clearing blockages. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update this message as required. Take care near the areas of concern and monitor your local weather conditions
