Dear Councillors,

Following on from my e-mail earlier today, the Met Office and Environment Agency have amended their Flood Guidance Note that now shows an amber warning for Surrey between Tuesday and Friday this week.  The number of flood warnings has also increased during the course of the day/early evening and the latest information can be accessed on their website giving more details around each locality.  The situation is fast moving, however the Environment Agency website is updated every 15 minutes in order to give an accurate picture of the current situation at any given time.

The County Council Emergency Centre will be remaining open over night tonight to support the response.

We will update you with any further significant changes.

Kind regards,


Mark Twomey

Deputy Head of Emergency Management
