Flooding is possible - be prepared

Heavy rain and thunderstorms have affected parts of London during this afternoon, Sunday 25 July. There is the potential for further showers during this evening and overnight into Monday 26 July. There is uncertainty around exact timings and which areas will experience the heaviest rain, but if heavy rainfall occurs in the Havering Park, Collier Row, Romford or Rush Green areas, there is a possibility that rivers could respond quickly and overtop their banks. Flooding to low lying land, roads and riverside gardens is possible. Surface water flooding may also affect low lying areas. We recommend you monitor local weather conditions and avoid walking, cycling or driving through flood water. We are continuing to monitor the situation closely and checking rivers for blockages. We will update this message tomorrow morning, Monday 26 July, or earlier if the situation changes.
