River Ribble at Ribchester, area surrounding Blackburn Road

Warning no longer in force

The risk of further flooding from Storm Ciara has now reduced. The Flood Warning for the area has now been removed as river levels have fallen. However, a Flood Alert remains in force for the wider area, so flooding may still affect roads and low lying land. Strong winds are forecast to continue today and tomorrow, with sporadic heavy showers possible. We continue to monitor the situation closely and will provide updates if the forecast changes. Please plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded and avoid contact with flood water
