Kent ready to face more bad weather

Kent County Council has responded to more than 2000 calls and are prepared for further damage this week.

Homes have been evacuated, vulnerable people cared for, meals provided, floodwater pumped, fallen trees removed, pets rescued and roads cleared.

On Christmas Eve, 31 people were rescued from cars in floodwater and eight more from flooded homes by Kent’s fire service.

On Christmas Day, 17 people were rescued from flooded homes.

Kent County Council has provided skips in the Yalding area so people can clear away debris and rubbish and have also supplied generators and oil filled radiators in the village to help people heating and cooking in their homes.
