for Flood alert in force now Lower Avon and tributaries

Flooding is possible - be prepared

River levels remain high but slowly dropping at the Ringwood Old Cottage river gauge as a result of the ground being saturated. The situation is improving but we expect river levels to remain high for some time and the risk of flooding along the River Avon valley between Ringwood and Christchurch remains. We are closely monitoring the situation. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near floodwaters and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers which may be flooded. The Met Office forecasts dry and settled weather to continue with some light rain expected early next week. This message will be updated on Friday 10/04/20, or as the situation changes.
