Flood alert for River Uck

Update, Tuesday, June 12, 2012, 8.20am: Flood warnings were reported no longer being in force by the Environment Agency at 8.28pm on Monday, June 11.

The River Uck and the Framfield, Ridgewood and Tickerage Streams were placed on flood alert by the Environment Agency last night.

The time is now 8.08am and there has been no update since 8.29pm but the agency said it was issuing the alert as a precaution because of predicted rainfall totals.

The situation was to be monitored over night and into this morning.

By 7.30pm last night the river levels hadn’t responded to rainfall and between 20 and 40 mm were predicted to fall over East Sussex  with the heaviest predicted between 9pm and 6am.

Some areas in East Sussex were expected to receive around 60mm of rain but it wasn’t possible to predict exactly where that would fall.

There were no warnings relating to Uckfield, Olives Meadow at Uckfield, Isfield or Buxted.
