The Environment Agency has issued flood warnings for the River Wye, Lugg, Arrow and Teme
THE Environment Agency has issued flood warnings across Herefordshire as heavy rain continues to hit the county.
The River Wye, the Lugg, the Arrow and the Teme are all on alert with water levels rising.
Firefighters had to rescue seventy sheep from farm land in Bucton, near Leintwardine, yesterday after being called at about 3.40pm.
Crews from Leintwardine and Bromyard were both sent due to concerns about "rapidly rising flood water" from the River Teme.
The Environment Agency said that the River Wye at the Old Bridge in Hereford, Mordiford and Ross-on-Wye were all rising this morning, as was the Teme in Leintwardine, the Lugg at Lugwardine and the Arrow at Titley, near Kington.
The Met Office report that heavy showers will continue to hit the county throughout today, with possible rumbles of thunder.
However, the rain is due to die out tomorrow, to leave a sunnier and dryer day.
