WARNING! Heavy rainfall tomorrow and Saturday!

Highways engineers and drainage experts at North East Lincolnshire Council have been making preparations for possible heavy rainfall tomorrow (Friday July 6) and Saturday in the Cleethorpes area  following Met Office warnings.

Severe weather warnings for the Yorkshire and Humber have been issued, advising the public to prepare for the possibility of some surface water flooding, and an increased likelihood of river flooding.

Residents are therefore advised to plan their travel and outdoor activities appropriately. The community is also asked to check on any vulnerable neighbours, such as the elderly, should the rain cause any localised problems.

Within the council, precautionary preparations are underway. Services are on stand-by, gullies are being checked following last week's flooding in Immingham, and water 'jetting' machinery is also on stand-by.

For the latest forecast and weather warning information, visit www.metoffice.gov.uk.

General advice on protecting your home and preparing for possible flooding can be found at www.environment-agency.gov.uk.

Any residents in North East Lincolnshire who are affected by flooding should contact the council on (01472) 313131.

I understand about a months worth of rain will fall tomorrow from around 9am!

    Phew! Well we seemed to have escaped serious flooding - so far - although around 8am my outside drain was spilling over - it just couldn't cope with the amount of rain coming down the drainpipe from the roof! Luckily that torrential rain didn't last for long - but if it had - it doesn't bear thinking about! We'll see what the rest of the day and tomorrow brings
