Flood alerts for Preston and the surrounding area have been withdrawn as Storm Callum passes.Advertisement
Winds of more than 50mph and heavy rain lashed the city from Friday (12 October) through to Saturday (13 October) lunchtime leading the Environment Agency to issue flood alerts – its lowest level warning.
The lower River Ribble and River Darwen (at Preston), upper River Ribble (Ribble Valley) and the Rivers Lostock and Yarrow (Bamber Bridge) all had alerts issued.
These have all now been removed but standing water does remain in some places around the city.
