Environment Agency warns of more flooding

River levels will remain high for the next few days and we expect to see further property flooding. We’re paying close attention to the River Thames, particularly Windsor, Datchet, Wraysbury, Egham and Staines. We are expecting more properties will flood over the coming hours, but there is still time for people to take appropriate action. We have had warnings and alerts in place for several days, which stress that flooding is imminent, and now is the time for people to act.

– Ian Tomes, Flood and Costal risk Manager

Environment Agency teams continue to work around the clock maintaining flood defences, clearing watercourses and deploying pumps and temporary defences to protect communities at risk, but we want to stress to residents that they need to act.
