One of the fastest growing Facebook pages locally is Welney Flood Watch that monitors water levels along the A1101 through the village.
It has gained over 3,200 'likes' in just a few weeks and is becoming a first-hand source of knowledge about when the road is closed.
"River levels showing 2.66m; it is coming down very slowly," says a posting earlier today.
