Flood warning

Heavy rain falling in the area over the last 24 hours has caused the River Axe to rise. We expect river levels to remain high overnight into Tuesday.
Flooding to Riverside property and highways is expected. Property flooding is expected at Chard Junction, and Axe Farm, Coaxdon and Weycroft cottages at Broom. Highway flooding is expected at Tytherleigh and Broom, the A358 crossing at Weycroft, the A35 at Yarty Bridge, the A3052 at Colyford, and Whitford to Musbury. There will be deep and fast flowing field flooding between Winsham and Axminster.
Flood waters may be deep and fast flowing. Residents are strongly urged to take action now. Remain safe and be aware of your local surroundings.
We will be closely monitoring the situation and this message will be updated as the situation changes.
