Flood warning in place for Surfleet Reservoir
A flood warning remains in place for Surfleet Reservoir.
The Environment Agency has warned that flooding could be possible until 9am this morning (Sunday, February 11) and from 7pm to 9pm this evening.
South Holland has been battered with heavy rain which has resulted in river levels rising in recent days.
The flood warning states: “Heavy rain has fallen in the Surfleet area which is causing the river levels to rise on the River Glen.
During periods of high tide, the river will be unable to discharge into the sea, resulting in tide lock conditions. This is likely to lead to localised flooding at Surfleet reservoir. This Flood Warning is now in force for the following tide lock periods: from 07:00 to 09:00 and 19:00-21:00 on Sunday 11th February.
“We are closely monitoring the situation.”
People living around the reservoir have endured previous floods which affected their property.
