Flooding

Toll Bar Flooding

The Environment Agency issues flood warnings. If there is a flood warning in your area you can expect flooding of homes and businesses.

 

You should:

• Act now by moving cars, pets, food, valuables and important documents to safety
• Put flood protection equipment in place
• Turn off gas, electricity and water supplies if it’s safe to do so
• Be prepared to evacuate your home

In the event of a severe flood warning you can expect flooding causing an extreme danger to life and property. You should:

• Collect the things you need for evacuation and turn off the gas, electricity and water supplies if it’s safe to do so
• Stay in a high place with a means of escape, avoid electricity sources and avoid walking or driving through flood water
• Call 999 immediately if you are in danger

 

Current flood warnings

The Environment Agency now has three levels of flood warning - Flood Alert, Flood Warning and Severe Flood Warning. For a regularly-updated list of flood warnings in our area, and a description of what these warnings mean, click here to visit the Environment Agency's website.
