for Flood warning in force now River Severn at Tewkesbury

Flooding is expected - immediate action required

River levels are high but steady at the Mythe Bridge river gauge as a result of recent rainfall. Consequently, flooding may be affecting Bredon Road, White Bear, King John’s Cottages, Lower Lode, Mill Avon riverside properties, Ashchurch Road and Church Street in Tewkesbury. Low lying property in Walton Cardiff may also be impacted. River levels are currently peaking at the Mythe Bridge between 4.4 and 4.5m. Further rainfall is forecast on Friday and Saturday, and we expect river levels to remain high. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are checking defences and liaising with emergency services. Please plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded and avoid contact with flood water. This message will be updated by 10am on Friday, 28/02/20, or as the situation changes.
