River levels are forecast to rise at the Onibury and Leintwardine river gauge as a result of heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is possible this evening and into tomorrow, 19/12/18. Flooding may affect low lying land and roads adjacent to the River Teme, River Onny and River Corve and their tributaries. Locations that may be affected include Bishops Castle, Church Stretton, Knighton and Ludlow. No further significant rainfall is forecast overnight. We expect river levels to begin rising this evening and overnight. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are clearing weed screens. 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 09:00 tomorrow, 19/12/18, or as the situation changes.
