The Environment Agency has issued a warning of groundwater flooding in Lavant valley villages.
Communities at risk of groundwater flooding to the north of Chichester include West Dean, Singleton, Charlton, East Dean and Chilgrove.
“Groundwater levels are rising through the Lavant valley and the borehole at Chilgrove is now artesian,” said a spokesman for the Environment Agency.
“We expect groundwater levels will continue to rise over the next few days and further rainfall is expected. There is likely to be flowing water on roads between Singleton and East Dean as well as on B2141 Chilgrove road.”
A flood alert is still in place for the River Lavant from Mid Lavant to Shopwhyke.
If you are being affected by flooding email the Observer.
