Flood update – 11 April 2024

flood updateThe flood warnings for Portsmouth are no longer in force. It's worth noting that the levels of water experienced were the highest ever recorded by the city and the flood defences, which have been invested in and improved, coped well during this extreme event. In particular the floodgates in Old Portsmouth prevented any houses flooding. The residents in Hamilton Road are all ok and officers are looking at ways to prevent any future flooding in that area. The response was a coordinated effort and the success is down to the hard work of all involved.
