West Somerset Streams

Flood Alert

The rain falling over West Somerset today, Tuesday 18/12/2018, is causing rivers to respond and rise. The rain is forecast to continue until about 18:00 this evening. The levels on the Monksilver Stream at Williton and the Washford River at Beggearn Huish are rising. Forecasts for these rivers show a likelihood of reaching flood alert level early this evening. Other rivers in the West Somerset area are generally rising but not currently forecast to reach alert level. Significant impacts are not expected. Catchments are wet, and localised surface flooding of low lying land and roads is possible this afternoon and evening. We have teams checking the rivers and structures in the area, such as any blockage at debris screens, culverts, bridges and sluices. Occasional heavy showers are forecast through tonight and tomorrow, Wednesday 19/12/2018. We will continue to monitor the situation and update this message tomorrow.

This information last updated 3:50pm, Tuesday 18th December.
