All flood warning alerts along the Derwent have been reduced to Amber 1, with the exception of Derby, which remains at Red 4.
The colour is the severity. The number is the tally of problem areas. In this case the “lower Derwent” is being treated as 1 location.
This means “risk of flooding – be prepared.”
The levels are dropping at points where the river has monitoring equipment, but due to heavy rainfall the warning remains. Light rain is expected this afternoon.
We can no longer advise on road closures, as official notices are not being updated for roads.
Trains are still cancelled.
The 6x bus is running a diverted route.
