Flood alert for Ryde

Tuesday, January 29, 2013 - 12:44

A SECOND flood alert has been issued for the Isle of Wight today (Tuesday).
The Environment Agency issued the alert for Monktonmead Brook shortly before 12.30pm.
According to the alert: "Over 20mm of rainfall has fallen over the last 18 hours and levels in the river are rising rapidly at the downstream end.
"A heavy rainfall alert is in place until 09:00 tomorrow morning (Wednesday).
"The Environment Agency pumps at Monktonmead pumping station are operating.
"High tide is midday today and tide locking is occurring as high tide coincides with peak river levels. However, as a significant amount of rain has fallen, local flooding directly from the river may occur.
"Please take appropriate actions to protect your property. Environment Agency staff will be on site shortly."
Earlier today (Tuesday) a flood alert was issued for the Eastern Yar.
