Flood Alert: Mansbridge and Riverside Park

A FLOOD alert has been issued in the Mansbridge and Riverside Park area of Southampton city centre.

The River Itchen which runs alongside the city will rise above the high water period, however flooding of homes is not expected. The water level is expected to reach 2.5 metres above sea level, which is 5.24 metres above the tidal level.

As well as the rising river levels, local wind strength will be in the force five region with a southerly direction, which could cause more risks of flooding.
