In case you don’t have eyes or a window, it’s raining outside. Hard.

 

And on the back of the torrential downpour, which sadly is expected to continue until tomorrow morning, Sheffield City Council has been busy responding to reports of flooding across the city.

 

With several reports of flooded roads and surface water across Sheffield, the council tell us that ‘teams at Streets Ahead have been dealing with issues on the roads as quickly possible.’

 

Earlier today, the Met Office issued an Amber Severe weather warning for Yorkshire & Humber, with disruption to travel predicted.

 

As the rain continues to fall, Streets Ahead is keeping people updated with road closures and live incidents on their Twitter page @sccstreetsahead

 

Currently there are seven roads closed in Sheffield – Ecclesall Road South, Parkway Drive, Mickley Lane, Whitley Lane, Mill Road, Upwell Street, Fife Street and Colley Road.

 

Millhouses Park is also closed to visitors due to rising water levels in the River Sheaf.

 

People can report flooding to us by calling Streets Ahead on 0114 273 4567.

 

As well as reports of surface water, flood warnings have been issued for the River Don and Blackburn Brook. For the latest flooding updates visit: https://www.gov.uk/check-flood-risk
