Rivers levels are continuing to rise in Herefordshire this morning but there is a little bit of hope.
Levels on the River Wye in Hereford are still rising at Hay-on-Wye, Bredwardine, Hereford, Mordiford and Ross-on-Wye and will continue to do so as the morning goes on. We expect levels to peak early this morning in Hay-on-Wye, before peaking this afternoon/evening in Hereford.
Levels have already peaked at Builth Wells with no major flooding reported. There are some signs that the peak on the Wye in Hereford COULD be slightly lower than was predicted yesterday but we will keep you updated when the Environment Agency release an update on predicted peaks shortly.
CURRENT LEVELS ON THE RIVER WYE AT 5AM SATURDAY:
BUILTH WELLS: 3.657 METRES (FALLING)
HAY-ON-WYE: 3.107 METRES (RISING)
BREDWARDINE: 4.63 METRES (RISING)
HEREFORD OLD BRIDGE: 4.016 METRES (RISING)
MORDIFORD: 4.218 METRES (RISING)
ROSS-ON-WYE: 3.43 METRES (RISING)
River levels also remain high on other rivers in the county, most notably the River Lugg South of Leominster, with levels at Lugwardine at 2.745 metres this morning and likely to remain high for several days.
Flood alerts remain in place on the River Wye, River Lugg, River Arrow, River Leadon and the Upper Teme.
Flood warnings remain in force on the River Wye from Hay-on-Wye to Ross-on-Wye and the River Teme at Leintwardine and Walford.
