Residents have been warned about further flooding and travel disruptions amid six hours of heavy rainfall today (4/1).

Berkshire is to be hit with further bad weather following the chaos caused by Storm Henk, which brought serious winds and wet weather to the South East.

A further six hours of rainfall has been predicted to cause flooding due to the oversaturated ground and rising water levels.

The MET Office has released another Amber alert to warn commuters of the disruption over the day and into the evening.

A spokesperson for the MET Office said: “A spell of rain is expected to move northeast across southern and eastern parts of England on Thursday, clearing during Thursday night.

“The track of the heaviest rainfall remains a little uncertain, but 10-20 mm is likely to fall within 6 hours across much of the warning area, with some places seeing 30-40 mm; these higher accumulations more likely across central southern England.

“Impacts are more likely due to the current very wet ground across the region. Strong winds may also accompany this heavy rain across southern and particularly southeast England this evening and overnight.”

Delays and cancellations to train and bus services are expected over the course of today and into this evening according to the MET office.

Possible power cuts and loss of services to some homes and businesses is also predicted.
