South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire folk are being warned to remain cautious as more rain is expected in flood-hit areas on Thursday.
As the Met Office issued several alerts for ice, rain and snow across the nation, the Environment Agency put out another warning that Britain’s flooding was far from over.
“Heavy rain is expected on Thursday, Friday and over the weekend which could lead to further flooding for communities in South Yorkshire around the Lower River Don,” the EA’s flood duty manager Kate Marks said in a statement.
The statement fully said
“Parts of Lincolnshire and the Midlands could also be affected by rain falling on already saturated ground over Thursday and Friday, as well as other parts of England as rain crosses the country from west to east.
“It’s really important that impacted communities remain vigilant and take steps to prepare for flooding by checking their flood risk regularly and making plans to stay safe.”
As the wild weather continues, the Met Office has six yellow weather warnings in effect for:
– snow in parts of south Wales and south-west England between Bath, Oxford and Worcester.
– rain further to the south-east in England, including London, and in the East Midlands.
– ice, in along eastern coastal regions of Scotland, from Kelso north to Elgin.
