River Yeo and River Parrett, Lower Reaches

Flood Alert

Storm Dennis continues to impact the South West. Strong winds and further rainfall are forecast today, Sunday 16/02/2020, adding to the significant amount of rainfall that has already fallen. This may bring a risk of flooding to low lying land and roads across the Somerset levels, such as the Ilchester to Yeovilton road, the Mudford to Limington road and at the south end of Westover Trading Estate. Properties at Westover Trading Estate at Langport may be at risk. Bank-full conditions are possible at Ilchester and water could reach the bottom of the ring-banks at Ilchester Meads and Ilchester. Field teams are out clearing debris screens and checking flood defences. Incident teams are monitoring river levels closely. Please be aware in case further flood warnings are issued this weekend. This message will be updated tomorrow, Monday 17/02/20, or as the situation changes.

This information last updated 9:59am, Sunday 16th February.
