Flood Alert

Ruspidge & Soudley


A Flood Alert has been issued by the Environment Agency.

Flood Alert in force: Rivers in the Forest of Dean.
Flooding is possible for: River Lyd and Cinderford Brook.
Be prepared.

River levels are forecast to rise at the Parkend river gauge as a result of heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is possible between this evening 15/11/22 and tomorrow afternoon, 16/11/22. We expect flooding to affect low lying land and roads adjacent to the river from Gloucester to Chepstow. Other locations that may be affected include Westbury and Lydney.
River levels may remain elevated over the next two days, as further showers are expected.
We are closely monitoring the situation. Please call 999 if in immediate danger.
