Important Message From The Environment Agency

This is a message from the Environment Agency.

Flood Warning no longer in force: River Severn at Severnside, Bewdley.

The situation is improving and no further flooding is expected in this area.

Flood Warnings and Alerts may still be in force for surrounding areas.

The Flood Warning for the area has now been removed.  However, a Flood Alert remains in force for the wider area, so flooding may still affect roads and low lying land.  No further rainfall is forecast.
Severnside flood barriers are scheduled to be removed by the end of Friday 20th January 2023.
We continue to monitor the situation.
Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded.

What you should consider doing now

* Flood water may still be around for several days. Take care as there may be hidden dangers in the flood water like sharp objects, raised manhole covers and pollution.

* If you have been flooded, ring your buildings and contents insurance company as soon as possible. In almost all cases they will send a loss adjuster to look at your property. They will confirm what repairs and replacements are needed and covered by your policy.
