A FLOOD ALERT has been issued by the Environment Agency for the Holderness Area:
Low lying land and roads will be affected first.
Be prepared to protect yourself, family, pets and property.
During Friday morning we are expecting heavy rain showers to enter the region from the east travelling westwards across the region. Some of this rain is likely to be heavy, which has the potential to cause localised surface water problems. Saturated ground means that rivers will respond to these showers. We will continue to monitor the situation. This message will be updated as the situation changes..
