It is hoped that the flood water will continue to drain away, however more heavy rain is forecast in the next few days. We are working closely with all our partners to monitor weather conditions and maintain safe roads and reliable journeys. Drivers should plan their journeys before setting out, check weather conditions, leave extra time for their journeys if travel conditions are poor, and delay their journey if the weather becomes severe."

Six weeks of heavy rainfall has resulted in exceptionally high groundwater levels. We've had some massive downpours in the past week, with some areas seeing more than double the long term average. This has resulted in some property flooding from groundwater sources. We're expecting further heavy downpours this weekend which unfortunately means that there is a risk of further property flooding across Wessex, and from groundwater flooding in some areas of Dorset.

This kind of localised event is difficult to predict but is devastating when it happens. It's important in this situation that people should not attempt to drive or walk through the flood water. Our teams have been hard pressed this week already and we're doing all we can to contain the situation and prevent it getting worse
