Heavy rain has fallen over the last 48 hours in the Dartmoor area, and river levels remain high. We expect riverside locations and roads between Dartmeet to Buckfastleigh to remain at risk. Flood waters may be deep and fast flowing in these areas. Residents are strongly urged to take action now. Remain safe and be aware of your local surroundings. Heaviest rain has cleared this area but rain showers are forecast for the next few days. We will be closely monitoring the situation and this message will be updated as the situation changes.
