River levels have peaked at the Ross-On-Wye and Lydbrook river gauges and remain high but steady. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is occurring. Flooding is affecting low lying land and roads along the River Wye. Scattered showers are expected over the next 24 hours with further prolonged rainfall forecast from midday on Wednesday 19/02/2020. We expect river levels to remain high over the next few days. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are checking defences. Please avoid contact with flood water. This message will be updated by 12pm on Wednesday 19/02/20 or as the situation changes.
