Residents Urged To Stay Safe As Further Flooding Possible

by Amber Valley Info on Wednesday 13 November 2019



Residents and businesses in flood risk areas across Derbyshire are being warned to take extra care and be vigilant due to the risk of further flooding in the county on Thursday 14 November.



Although river levels in parts of the county have fallen since the weekend more rain is forecast on Thursday afternoon and evening. As the ground is saturated there is a risk of flooding in low lying areas in Grindleford, Ashford-in-the-Water and Darley Bridge. Other areas affected by flooding at the end of last week are also warned to be on alert, as the situation may change due to the anticipated amount of rain.

Derbyshire County Council staff are liaising with partner agencies across the county, and its road workers have been visiting all major roads in the county today (Weds 13 Nov) to clear drains and small patches of flooding. 

Advice to residents from the county council includes:

•           Sign up to receive flood alerts from the Environment Agency (EA) – www.gov.uk/check-flood-risk
•           Find out how to protect your property from flooding at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/flooding
•           Don’t drive or walk through floodwater
•           Stock up on sandbags. Find out where you can get them at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/sandbags or make your own using old pillow cases or carrier bags filled with sand or earth
•           Keep a list of useful numbers such as your insurance company and the EA’s Floodline number 0845 988 1188
•           Make a flood kit to include a torch, battery or wind up radio, regular medicine, rubber gloves and your insurance documents
•           Make sure you know where to turn off your gas and electricity supplies.

There are still several roads closed because of the floods last week, which are all listed on the county council’s website www.derbyshire.gov.uk/roadclosures

This list is updated when roads are closed, or re-opened so please check before travelling and do not drive into flood water or drive on roads that are closed.

On Wednesday the following roads were still closed:

Derbyshire Dales 
•           Abney Road, Abney to the Gliding Club - closed because of a landslip and likely to remain so for some time.
•           Park Lane, Rodsley, Ashbourne - closed because of flood damage.

•           Birkin Lane, Wingerworth – road closed at junctions of Pearce Lane, Bolehill Lane and Malthouse Lane because of flooding caused by a water leak

•           Gashouse Lane, Eckington - closed because of damage to the road from flooding.
