We’re urging residents and businesses in flood risk areas across Derbyshire to take extra care and be vigilant due to the risk of further flooding in the county on Thursday 14 November 2019.
Although river levels in parts of the county have fallen since the weekend more rain is forecast on Thursday afternoon and evening. As the ground is saturated there is a risk of flooding in low lying areas in Grindleford, Ashford-in-the-Water and Darley Bridge. Other areas affected by flooding at the end of last week are also warned to be on alert, as the situation may change due to the anticipated amount of rain.
