for Flood warning in force now River Cherwell from below Banbury to just above Upper Heyford

Flooding is expected - immediate action required

Property flooding is possible. River levels are rising on the River Cherwell as a result of heavy rainfall. Therefore, flooding (of property) is possible overnight. We are not expecting property flooding except for those closest to the river. Peak levels will be similar to the flooding in March 2016. No further rainfall is forecast tonight (14/11/2019) with a few showers tomorrow. We expect river levels to remain high over the coming days. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff have been in the area clearing weed/trash screens. Please move family, pets and valuables to safety and avoid contact with flood water. This message will be updated tomorrow morning, 15/11/2019, or as the situation changes.
