Upper River Tamar

Flood alert

Flooding is possible on Saturday the 24th of February. Over the last 24 hours we have seen heavy showers in the area and the River Tamar has risen in response to this rainfall. Expected levels suggest that there will be flooding to low lying land and roads close to the river. Further persistent rain, some of which may be heavy, is forecast between 6am to 6pm on Sunday and river levels will remain responsive.

Take care near the areas of concern and monitor your local weather conditions. We are monitoring river levels and have staff in the area checking for and clearing blockages. This message will be updated by 11am on Sunday 25th of February, or earlier if the situation changes.
