Possible Flood Alert issued

Simon Tydeman has been in touch about an article in yesterday’s Horncastle News:

A flood alert, meaning flooding is possible, has been issued by the Environment Agency for properties near the River Bain from Goulceby to Tattershall, including the River Waring.

The Environment Agency said: “Significant rain has fallen overnight and the river levels have started to rise. We expect the river to continue to rise. Low lying land and roads are likely to be affected first.”

The Environment Agency advises anyone wanting more information call Floodline on 0345 988 1188, select option 1 and enter Quickdial number 031335        Read more

Remember, you can now monitor the river level in our village here


River Bain Depth Monitor

Driving over the bridge today I noticed the river level was up. I have found a web based depth guage which reads the level every few minutes. This could be valuable to residents especially as we seem to have no flood warden in the village just now. I have also placed this on the home page (right-hand) sidebar, so you can check the level any time.
