for Flood alert in force now Rivers Lowther and Eamont

Flooding is possible - be prepared

River levels remain high after recent rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is possible today, 25/02/21, and tomorrow, 26/02/21. Flooding is expected to affect low lying land and roads in the Bampton, Patterdale, Glenridding, Dockray, Pooley Bridge, Dacre, Eamont Bridge and Penrith areas. High river and lake levels are possible on the River Lowther, Haweswater Beck, Goldrill Beck, Grisedale Beck, Glenridding Beck, Aira Beck, Ullswater, River Eamont, Dacre Beck, Thacka Beck and their tributaries. The forecast is now dry so we expect levels to slowly recede. We are closely monitoring the situation. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near rivers and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated this afternoon, 25/02/21, or as the situation changes.
