Flood Alert

19th of January, 2021

Taken from gov.uk:

Flooding is possible - be prepared

River levels are forecast to rise across Earby Beck and Glusburn Beck as a result of persistent rainfall, from Tuesday morning, 19/01/21, until Thursday morning.

Consequently, flooding of property, roads and farmland is possible from Tuesday morning onwards. Areas most at risk are low lying land, roads and farmland.

As a result we expect to see high river levels from around midday on Tuesday.

We will be monitoring closely to assess locations where we may need to issue flood warnings. Our field teams are out today, checking defences and clearing screens ahead of the rainfall. We are liaising closely with our partners to ensure they are ready to respond. Please put your flood plan into action and activate any property flood protection products you may have, such as flood barriers and air brick covers. Avoid using low lying footpaths near watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid roads which may be flooded.
