WATER levels in rivers across Wokingham borough remain high, with the River Thames coming over its banks in Earley, homes in Wargrave warned of flooding today and roads in Swallowfield still flooded.
The Environment Agency has flood warnings in place, although waters are starting to recede.
And with the weather forecast looking like Christmas week will be mostly dry, the risk of homes flooding is minimal.
In Wargrave, residents are being warned that isolated flooding of low-lying properties adjacent to the river in the Loddon Drive area of Wargrave is possible later today.
River levels have risen on the River Loddon due to the heavy rain, and it is possible that the water could reach homes.
The Environment Agency warned: “Our incident response staff are in the area clearing weed and trash screens and in the area checking defences. Please move family, pets and cars to safety and remain safe and aware of your local surroundings.”
Other flood warnings from the Environment Agency have not been updated since yesterday morning.
The Environment Agency warned that although homes shouldn’t be affected, here is a risk and homeowners are urged to move possession and valuables off the ground and to safety.
As water levels go down, the roads around Swallowfield are starting to return to normal.
Part Lane is still flooded this morning, but Church Road is clearing. There is some surface water, and mud and debris on the road.
The fields around the Blackwater River are flooded and the playground around Swallowfield Parish Hall is waterlogged.
Land around Long River is flooded.
In Winnersh, the car parks for Showcase Cinema and Winnersh Garden Centre are both starting to return to normal, while the car park of the Doubletree hotel at Sindlesham Mill is starting to become accessible.
The electric charging points which were under water yesterday are now starting to clear.
An in Earley, by the Wokingham Waterside Centre, the River Thames has burst its banks with water all along the fields along the Thameside path.
In a statement on Friday, Doug Wilson, Flood Duty Manager at the Environment Agency, said:
“Our flood information officers are out on the ground in communities where there is a risk of flooding and we have over 350 staff working around the clock to help keep people safe.
“We advise people to sign up for flood warnings, to stay away from swollen rivers and not to drive through flood water – just 30cm of flowing water is enough to float your car.”
