Washford River, riverside properties from Kingsbridge to Lower Roadwater

Flood Warning

Storm Dennis has brought persistent rainfall throughout this weekend. Scattered showers are forecast tonight, Sunday, 16/02/2020 into Monday. River levels on the Washford River at Beggearn Huish have now peaked but remain above the Flood Warning threshold. Catchments are saturated and we expect river levels to remain high into the early part of next week. We believe there is a possibility of flooding for properties in Roadwater and roads in Kingsbridge until Monday morning. Our incident response staff have been clearing weed screens, checking defences and monitoring the situation closely. Please stay aware in case further warnings are issued. This message will be updated tomorrow morning, 17/02/2020, or as the situation changes.
