for Flood warning in force now Ea Beck at Thorpe Marsh and Almholme

Flooding is expected - immediate action required

River levels on Ea Beck remain high and Thorpe Marsh reservoir is at capacity. We are expecting scattered showers throughout today (Tuesday, 12/11/19), however we do not currently expect this to have any further significant impact on river levels. River levels will remain high - especially in the lower catchments of Ea Beck. Property and farmland may still flood. We are closely monitoring the situation and have deployed two 12-inch pumps to Thorpe Marsh. Looking ahead we are expecting a band of rain to move across the catchments broadly from the east on Thursday night. This will be locally heavy, particularly for high ground exposed to the south and south-east. Given the wet condition of the catchment, we expect to see the rivers respond. See GOV.UK for a 5 day flood forecast. Our incident room remains open. To report any flood impacts please call 0800 80 70 60. This message will be updated by 12:50 on 12/11/2019, or as the situation changes.
