How to stay safe during a flood
Below you will find information about how to stay safe when an area has flooded.
Staying safe when walking outside
- Avoid walking through flood water – six inches of fast flowing water can knock you over.
- Man-hole covers may have come off and there may be other hazards you cannot see.
- Avoid walking along riverbanks or across river bridges - they may collapse in extreme situations.
