for Flood alert in force now Lower Avon and tributaries

Flooding is possible - be prepared

River levels remain high at the Ringwood Old Cottage river gauge as a result of heavy rainfall over the past week. Although no significant rainfall is forecast until Wednesday 13/11/19 we expect river levels to remain high. Consequently, the risk of flooding remains. Areas most at risk are tributaries between Ringwood and Christchurch. We are closely monitoring the situation and our incident response staff are checking defences. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses. This message will be updated on 12/11/19, or as the situation changes.
