Overnight winds do little damage to Bucks
12:49pm Wednesday 5th February 2014 in News
RAIN and high winds left Buckinghamshire largely unscathed overnight, with road crews having to attend only a handful of call outs.
Crews attended two surface water flood sites - one in Stoke Mandeville and the other in Bradenham. They cleared four fallen trees and branches on roads at Burnham, Great Missenden, Beaconsfield and Denham.
TfB said calls continue to come in to Buckinghamshire's transport operations hub this morning and emergency crews are being co-ordinated to attend all calls received.
By 11am today, 25 calls to roads issues had been received, among them six reports of fallen trees at Burnham, High Wycombe, Hyde Heath and Denham, and five reports of surface water flooding on roads at Beaconsfield, Little Kingshill, Maids Moreton and Tingewick.
Four emergency crews will continue to operate throughout the county and two more crews are standing by to deal with any additional call-outs.
The Met Office forecasts bands of heavy showers tonight and tomorrow becoming more persistent into Friday, and bringing between 20mm and 40mm of rainfall.
Gales are forecast later in the week.
To report any flooded roads or fallen trees, please call 0845 230 2882.
