A flood warning issued by the Environment Agency for the river Eden in Carlisle is still in place this morning.
Have your say
i don't live near any rivers but still got flooded out a few years ago due to blocked road drains now that is the councils fault, most of them are blocked and never got cleaned out!!
Ta ian, but as bob has said further down, the graphic is still wrong :-) - as the EA hasn't incorporated the fact the caldew went higher than 3.15m this summer at cummersdale when steads flooded. If you look at the EA's river level data the Petteril actually went higher this week at Newbiggin than it ever has before too (if you can trust the EA data). http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/homeandleisure/floods/riverlevels/120711.aspx?stationId=5100
I'm glad I didn't buy a house in an area with a potential for flooding.
