With further flooding expected across Britain this weekend, The Environment Agency has issued a step-by-step guide on how to prepare for flooding.
Here are some of the key points which can help you reduce the impact of flooding:
- Prepare a flood kit with important documents such as passports and insurance certificates, blankets and warm clothing, first aid kit, radio, tinned food and bottled water.
- Make a flood plan which will help you decide what practical actions there are to take before and during a flood.
- Meet with members of the local community, communicate with neighbours and help to ensure everyone can access up-to-date flooding information.
- Prepare your property for flooding and reduce water from short, shallow flooding through the use of sandbags.
More heavy rain and strong gusts will sweep across Britain this weekend, with further floods expected in the UK.
