River Vyrnwy at Melverley

Flood Warning

River levels continue to rise slowly at the Llanymynech river gauge and remain high but steady at the Cae Howel and Crew Green river gauges following recent rainfall. Consequently, flooding of property, roads and farmland continues. Flooding may be affecting properties and roads in and around Melverley including Melverley to Melverley Green and Ponthen to Melverley roads. Further rainfall is forecast over the next 48 hours. We expect river levels to remain high for the next few days. We are closely monitoring the situation. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses & plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated by 5pm on Thursday 20/02/20, or as the situation changes.
