Flood alert – Upper River Tamar


Flooding is possible throughout today, Saturday 20th February and into Sunday in the Upper River Tamar area: Bude, Helebridge, Bridgerule, Canworthy Water, Launceston and Yeolmbridge

Persistent overnight rain has caused river levels to rise, and are expected to remain high throughout the day.

Further rainfall is forecast to continue throughout today.

From early evening, rain will ease, becoming showery into Sunday. Some of this rain could be heavy, especially over high ground where very large totals remain possible. This may result in flooding to low lying land and roads close to rivers. However, flooding to properties is not currently expected.

Take care near the areas of concern and monitor your local weather conditions.
