The River Dee Catchment in England from Whitchurch to Chester

Flood Alert

River levels remain high at the Farndon river gauge as a result of rainfall earlier in the week. Consequently, flooding of low lying land, roads and farmland is possible. We believe there is a possibility of flooding for low lying land and roads around the River Dee at Shocklach, Farndon, Handley, Lower Kinnerton, Chester and Puddington. Townfield Lane continues to be cut off. We expect river levels to remain above the Flood Alert level for several days. We are not expecting to issue any Flood Warnings. Our incident response staff are closely monitoring weather forecasts and river levels and will issue further updates as necessary. This message will be updated before 10:00 tomorrow morning, 19/01/2020 or if the situation changes.

This information last updated 9:23am, Saturday 18th January.
