for Flood alert in force now River Thames and tributaries in the Oxford area

Flooding is possible - be prepared

Property flooding is not currently expected. River levels remain high on the River Thames in the Oxford area as a result of heavy rainfall over the last week and high river levels upstream. Therefore, flooding of low lying road and farmland is expected to continue. The forecast is mostly dry today. We expect river levels to fall slowly over the coming days. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are operating weirs to reduce flood risk and will be in the area monitoring levels. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and refer to the 'River and Sea levels in England' webpage for current river levels. This message will be updated this evening, 19/11/2019, or as the situation changes.
