Flood Alert in force: Groundwater flooding in villages surrounding Andover.
Communities at risk of groundwater flooding surrounding Andover, including Weyhill Bottom, Kimpton, Amport and Monxton.
Groundwater levels in all the villages surrounding Andover are very high, with levels still rising slowly in response to a small amount of rainfall recorded last Sunday (02/02/2020). Until Saturday evening, the weather is dry. Storm Ciara then affects the UK. From Saturday (08/02/2020) to Monday (10/02/2020) 15mm to 30mm of rain is expected. Whilst Tuesday is currently forecast to be dry, the weather may remain unsettled later in the week. We expect groundwater levels will continue to rise over the next 7 to 10 days.
