|Ensure you are prepared for flooding
Following recent heavy rain and flooding around the county, it is important that you are prepared and know what to do in case of further incidents.
This winter has been exceptionally wet, with several storms battering the county and a risk of more flooding, particularly in areas that are already at risk of river or groundwater flooding.
You should take steps to reduce the risk to your properties by installing property protection measures if you live in a high-risk area. These can be resistance measures designed to stop water coming in, such as a flood door, or resilience measures, which can help to reduce the impact of any flooding, such as raising any fitting tiled flooring.
You should also sign up for flood warnings and know what to do in case of flooding.
