Flooding Update Cholsey 15.50 on Saturday 8th February

I have contacted the County Council’s Severe Weather Desk as many homes on wallingford Road are in danger of – or have already – flooding.

As far as I am aware there are no further supplies of sandbags at SODC, but you can improvise with earth and black bags.

Thames Water have been called by many householders as sewage is pushing out of drains. Usually they are suggesting that they will attend within twelve hours.

The following statement has been released:”OCC Teams, District Councils and Emergency Response agencies are ramping up their preparations and response capability in response to Met Office and Environment Agency predictions for the next 3-5 days which indicate continued heavy showers and potentially high winds that could result in surface water flooding and a higher risk of river flooding”.

I will attempt to update my blog as I get information.
