River Yeo and River Parrett Moors around Muchelney and Thorney

Flood Alert

The River Yeo level at Huish Episcopi pumping station is 8.06 m and is rising as pumping operations continue. The drain level at Huish Episcopi pumping station is 7.78 m and falling in response to the pumping. Flooding of the road from Langport to Muchelney will remain until this level is below 7.30m; this could take many more days. Pumping to drain the moors will continue for as long as the river capacity allows. There is more rain forecast today, Thursday 20/02/20, and over the weekend, so please stay aware of flood warning updates in the coming days as catchments remain saturated and rivers are very responsive to further rain. This message will be updated on Friday 21/02/2020 or earlier if the situation changes.

This information last updated 12:15pm, Thursday 20th February.
