for Flood warning in force now Upper Frome from Maiden Newton to Dorchester

Flooding is expected - immediate action required

River levels have risen at the Stinsford river gauge as a result recent persistent heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding is forecast from 09:45, 17/2/20. We believe there is a possibility of flooding for areas in Higher Frome Vauchurch, Frome Vauchurch, Cruxton, Notton, Frampton, Grimstone, Muckleford, Stratton, Bradford Peverell, Wrackleford, Charminster, Frome Whitfield, Wolfeton, Lower Burton and Cokers Frome. We expect river levels to remain high over the next 24 hours. Our incident response staff are checking defences. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and consider installing property flood resilience equipment. We are closely monitoring the situation. This message will be updated as the situation changes.
