Further extreme weather conditions have led to the Environment Agency issuing four new Flood Alerts in the Midlands:
- Severn Vyrnwy Confluence
- River Wye in Derbyshire
- River Severn in Worcestershire
- Tidal Trent
Flood Alerts are the Environment Agency's lowest category of flood risk. It is followed by a Flood Warning, which in turn is followed by a Severe Flood Warning, which means there is a potential for loss of life.
