One Thorpe in Balne resident, living in one of the properties closest to the river said she had not heard anything, but said she had a friend in Barnby Dun who had received a warning from the EA.
A resident in Thorpe in Balne of nearly 40 years, Steve Jones, said: “The road here has flooded in the past as its next to the river, where the power station used to be, but I don’t think the houses have done for a long time.
“We’ve not heard anything from the Environment Agency this time yet.”
A third resident also said they had not been contacted.
An Environment Agency spokesman said: “Flood warnings are issued as a free service to those that have signed up to receive them through the Environment Agency’s website.
“We are committed to delivering this important early warning advice for people and are now investigating further after unconfirmed reports that residents on Thorpe-in-Balne, near Doncaster, did not receive their update during Storm Ciara.”
