The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for rain in our area, with 10-20mm forecast across the East Midlands over 23-24 October.
Up to 50mm could fall in some parts of the region. While the chances of a repeat of last weekend’s impacts are rated as relatively low level, the message from partner agencies, including the emergency services, is stay prepared and vigilant.
Hang on to any sandbags you have for the time being. As a precaution, DDDC has now reinstated its 01629 761167 floodline number.
