Environment Agency

Flood Alert and Warning messages issued by the Envoronment Agency specific to the River Ant and our business premises at Wayford Bridge, Norwich, Norfolk.

FLOOD ALERT This message has been issued because some minor flooding to riverside roads and footpaths is expected to continue today, Sunday 27th September. Water levels remain high following Friday's heavy rain but are expected to drop away on Monday. This is due to the natural tide locking effect of high tidal waters moving up the rivers from Great Yarmouth that restricts the normal drainage out to sea of the Broads river system at low tide. We expect to see high water levels in Brundall and Reedham riverside areas We are not currently expecting the situation to escalate, or to issue any further warning messages for this area at this time. Take care on waterside roads and footpaths and don't put yourself in unnecessary danger. We are monitoring the situation and will update this message as necessary, and no later than 6pm on Sunday 27th September.

WARNING NO LONGER IN FORCE River levels are now returning to normal. The forecast is for no further risk from flooding today, Sunday 27th September. No significant rainfall is expected today. Continue to take care on waterside roads and footpaths and don't put yourself in unnecessary danger. We will continue to monitor levels closely.

FLOOD ALERT This message has been issued because some minor flooding to riverside roads and footpaths is expected today, Saturday 26th and overnight into Sunday 27th September. Water levels are expected to continue to stay high for several days following Friday's heavy rain. This is due to the natural tide locking effect of high tidal waters moving up the rivers from Great Yarmouth that restricts the normal drainage out to sea of the Broads river system at low tide. We expect to see high water levels around Wroxham boat yards and Ferry road in Horning. We are not currently expecting the situation to escalate, or to issue any further warning messages for this area at this time but are closely monitoring the combined risk from yesterday's rainfall and a tide-locking scenario. Take care on waterside roads and footpaths and don't put yourself in unnecessary danger. We are monitoring the situation and will update this message as necessary, and no later than 10am on Sunday 27th September.
