The Environment Agency is urging people to check their risk of flooding and sign up for free flood alerts and warnings. The service will tell you:

  • current flood warnings or alerts
  • river, sea, groundwater and rainfall levels
  • your flood risk in the next 5 days

If you want to know if there’s surface water flooding (also known as ‘flash flooding’) in your area you will need to contact your local council.  Visit this page to learn more.
