for Flood alert in force now River Sow and River Penk

Flooding is possible - be prepared

The heavy rain and showers that fell over the catchment on Thursday night resulted in the river levels rising. Most rivers in the catchment have now fallen back to within a normal range, however the Sow is still responding slowly. It is forecast to fall slowly today and into this evening. Therefore, there may still be some flooding to low lying land and roads today (Saturday 22nd). There is the potential for light scattered showers today, and potential light rain tomorrow (Sunday 23rd) morning. No flooding of properties is expected and no Warnings are expected to be issued. Take care near areas of concern and monitor your local weather conditions and the GOV.UK website. We are continuing to monitor the situation.
