Flood update Friday 15 November 2019 at 6pm
The outlook in the district is stabilising and the latest advice from the Environment Agency is that the level is rising very slowly and is predicted to peak at 2.15 on the Farndon Gauge between 3.00am and 6.00am on Saturday 16 November. This peak is expected to arrive at Tolney Lane between 6.00am and 9.00am and will, in effect, be 5cm higher than the current observed level of 2.10. We estimate that the water level would need to rise by a further 30cm before the road floods, but the situation will be monitored and the council’s emergency control room remains on standby.
The towpath adjacent to the Riverside Park has breached and has been cordoned off to protect the public.
There are still a number of road closures in place. For the latest road closure information go to Nottinghamshire County Council website.
Police colleagues will be monitoring the situation through the night and will contact the Emergency Control Room if the situation deteriorates further.
