RIVERSIDE properties at The Groves in Chester face the possibility of flooding as part of a renewed weather warning.

High tides on the River Dee have already seen parts of the river encroaching on to The Groves today (Tuesday, February 11), as the after-effects of Storm Ciara over the weekend are still making themselves known.

And now the Government's Flood information service, which issued a warning to the area on Monday, has provided a fresh warning labelled 'Flooding is expected - immediate action required'.

It said: "The high tide is expected to be higher than usual at Chester Weir as a result of high spring tides and strong winds.

"Consequently flooding of property is possible between 1.45am and 2.15am tomorrow, 12/02/20.

"We believe there is a possibility of flooding for riverside properties from Grosvenor Bridge to the Groves. Peak levels will be lower than the flooding in January 2014.

"Coastal conditions are expected to continue until after the high tides at 2pm on 12/02/20 at Chester Weir.

"Our incident response staff are closely monitoring weather forecasts and river levels and will issue (further) flood warnings if necessary. Please be careful along coastal footpaths and roads."

It comes as Cheshire West and Chester Council teams have been busy clearing up after Storm Ciara to help keep people safe and the borough road network moving.

Teams across Highways and StreetCare received more than 100 Storm Ciara-related calls and enquiries over Saturday and Sunday, working through challenging conditions.

The teams have cut up and removed more than 33 trees and dealt with 20 incidents of localised flooding throughout the borough, mostly during Sunday.

Councillor Karen Shore, deputy leader and Cabinet Member for Environment, Highways and Strategic Transport, said: “Many council teams have been worked around the clock throughout the weekend to keep residents safe and the county’s road network moving.

“Storm Ciara made a big impact on West Cheshire and it is a testament to our teams’ hard work that they have removed so many fallen trees and obstructions in such a short space of time.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them for all their hard work in incredibly difficult conditions.”
