Update on surface water flooding:

Woodhouse Road / Causeway Wood Road going up to Lumbutts Road is closed to traffic due to road flooding

Scott Street in Walsden has surface water flooding.

Latest Update:

River levels are high but as yet there are no reports of river flooding. The main band of heavy rain has now passed through and the Environment Agency is not expecting any of the rivers to breach. Calderdale Flood Wardens are out monitoring at high risk sites as a precaution.

There are some instances of surface water flooding so please drive carefully and slowly if you do have to drive on a flooded road.  

For general information on what to do before and during a flood see the Environment Agency’s guide ow.ly/C4nZ306obSu
