Severn Vyrnwy confluence

Flood alert

River levels are forecast to rise at the Llanymynech river gauge as a result of heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is possible from 7:30 pm this evening, Saturday 08/05/21. We expect flooding to affect low lying land and roads adjacent to the river from the Welsh border at Llawnt to Shrawardine near Shrewsbury. Other locations that may be affected include Llanymynech, Maesbrook and Melverley. Predicted peaks: Llanymynech 3.0m to 3.4m Saturday evening 08/05/21. Further light rainfall is forecast over the next 24 hours. We are closely monitoring the situation. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated by 10am on 09/05/21 or as the situation changes.
