Barriers Going Up

The flood barriers are being erected today in Hereford as a precaution, due to the heavy rainfall received in Wales over the last 24 hours which is expected to raise levels on River Wye

Please keep up to date with any flooding warnings or any road closures on the council's new flooding information pages here

Always keep safe during flooding, always focus on the safety of yourself and your family.

Do not underestimate the danger and damage that a flood can cause. Flood water can be very dangerous; six inches of fast-flowing water can knock you off your feet and two feet can sweep away a car.

You can check for the latest flooding alerts here or call the Floodline 24-hour service on 0345 988 1188.

If you are aware of any fallen trees or flooding that is blocking roads please report it to 01432 261800.

There are also details available of the river levels at www.gaugemap.co.uk
