YELLOW flood warnings have been issued across Solihull as more rain is forecast.

Residents living close to the River Blythe have been warned about the potential for flooding due to the heavy rain hitting the borough today (Tuesday 25).

Solihull Council has reiterated support is available for residents affected on the back of devastating and ‘unprecedented’ flooding last year that left scores temporarily homeless.

The Environment Agency has urged people to be vigilant and to take measures to protect themselves and property.

It said there is uncertainty over the amount of rainfall expected and the exact location of thunderstorms and the heavy rain.

The Environment Agency added: “There is river and surface water flooding may affect these areas.

“We urge you to remain vigilant and avoid walking and driving through flood water.

“We are continuing to actively monitor the situation closely and will issue updates, and further flood alerts and warnings if necessary.

“You can monitor your local weather conditions and river levels on the gov.uk website.”

Earlier this month there were road closures and train stoppages across the borough as a Red Warning was issued for the River Blythe around Earlswood.
