Experts give Doncaster the all clear as latest flood alert ends
Environment experts have sounded the all clear over latest flooding concerns in Doncaster
The Environment Agency (EA) has dropped its flood alert on the Lower River Don catchment – a section of river running through Doncaster.
The EA lifted the alert for that stretch of the river just before 9am today.
It stated: “This flood alert is no longer in force for the River Don between Doncaster and Thorne. The river level continues to fall. There is some rain forecast overnight (13/02/2020) but we do not anticipate a significant river level response.
“Low-lying land around the river will continue to be affected by standing water. Our Leeds incident room remains open: we are monitoring the situation in relation to rain expected on 15/02/2020 and 16/02/2020; and our operations teams continue to assess conditions on the ground. Please see GOV.UK for a 5 day flood forecast, and for weather forecasts see the Met Office.”
