Flood Alert (15-16 February)

Be Prepared

We have been notified that heavy rainfall is expected in South Wales this weekend (15 – 16 February) and this will have an impact on the River Wye. The early indications are still unclear, but the river levels could rise to the same level as experienced in October 2019. At this stage we would encourage residents in the Symonds Yat area to closely monitor information provided by the Met Office and the Environment Agency and be prepared to take appropriate action.

If you experience or witness flooding in your vicinity please call 01432 261800.

For the latest information call the Environment Agency’s Floodline 0345 988 1188 or follow @EnvAgency on twitter.

Herefordshire Council will continue to share relevant information as it becomes available.
