Adverse Weather and Flooding
FOR THE ATTENTION OF ALL MEMBERS (CC ALL PARISH COUNCIL CLERKS)
In the early hours of Sunday 16th February the East Midlands and Rushcliffe in particular saw continuous heavy rainfall across the area. As the ground was already ‘super saturated’ the run off from land, fields and gardens was much increased and therefore water courses and rivers responded far quicker than usual. As a result, many communities were severely impacted by surface water flooding on 16th February and flood warnings were issued for waterside homes on the Soar, Smite and the Trent.
