The Environment Agency have issued weather warnings for today
Travel disruption and property damage could affect local homeowners as more flood alerts are issued for today.
The warning to be prepared covers Elbridge, Lidsey, Aldingbourne, Barnham, Yapton and Ryebank Rife.
The Aldingbourne Rife remains high, following twice the monthly average rainfall in November. Flooding will continue to affect fields near Shripney Lane and the A259, parts of the car park at Tesco and land around caravans at Riverside Caravan Centre and Rowan Park Caravan Park. Some roads, including Shripney Lane may be impassable, please plan to avoid driving through routes vulnerable to flooding.
West Sussex County Council have advised to keep yourself and your family safe by doing some simple actions: keep up to date with the latest information including by listening to local radio; move important items to a higher level if possible; prepare an emergency grab bag containing bottled water, warm clothes, medicines and other essential items.
