River Wye Floods

Recommended Posts

The river Wye in Hereford is very high with flooding already along the river path with no access to the Old Bridge.

The river is expected to peak this evening.

The mighty Wye peaking now at Bredwardine. Several roads affected in area. Take care if travelling and obey Road closed signs.

A lot of fast flowing water on A438 Leyton Herefordshire Road 'closed signs' in place but many motorists are ignoring.

Lugg east of Hereford very high. Just spilling onto floodplain now

Flood defences doing what they're designed for and keeping the city dry. Remarkable experience walking alongside - water waist height on wet side!
