Flood Alert (15-16 February) - Be Prepared
Sent on Behalf of the Herefordshire Council’s Resilience Team
We have been notified that heavy rainfall is expected in South Wales this weekend (15 – 16 February) and that this will have an impact on rivers within Herefordshire. Whilst early indications are still unclear, river levels could rise to the same level as experienced in October 2019. At this stage we would encourage people in the county to closely monitor information provided by Herefordshire Council, the Met Office and the Environment Agency and be prepared to take appropriate action.
