Coronavirus (COVID-19): how we're protecting our flood warning service

for Flood alert in force now Severn Vyrnwy confluence

Flooding is possible - be prepared

River levels are forecast to continue rising at the Llanymynech river gauge as a result of Storm Christoph. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is expected. We expect flooding to affect low lying land and roads adjacent to the river from the Welsh border at Llawnt to Shrawardine near Shrewsbury. Other locations that may be affected include Llanymynech, Maesbrook and Melverley. Predicted peaks:- Llanymynech 4.6m to 4.8m this evening 20/01/21. Further rainfall is forecast over the next 24 hours. We expect river levels to remain high for several days. We are closely monitoring the situation and our incident response staff are checking local defenses. Please avoid using low lying footpaths and roads near local watercourses. This message will be updated by 9am tomorrow morning, 21/01/21, or as the situation changes
