  • Move family, pets and valuables to a safe place. 
  • Keep a flood kit ready including a torch, batteries, fully charged mobile phone, warm clothes, water, food and any prescription medicines you may need. 
  • If it's safe, make sure your neighbours are aware of the situation and offer help to anyone who may need it. 
  • Avoid walking, cycling or driving through flood water.
