The UK's Flood Warning Service is a free service provided by the Environment Agency to warn you about flooding and provide advice about what to do before, during, or after a flood.
Three levels of flood warnings
- Flood Alert – Prepare. Flooding is possible and so prepare a bag that includes medicines and insurance documents. Visit the flood warning information service
- Flood Warning – Act. Flooding is expected and immediate action is required. Turn off gas, water and electricity. Move things upstairs to safety. Move family, pets and cars to safety
- Severe Flood Warning – Survive. Severe flooding can mean danger to life. Call 999 if you are in immediate danger. Follow advice from emergency services. Keep yourself and your family safe
