Alert Of Heavy Rainfall Thursday 20th September 2018

Flood-Warning-Flip

The Environment Agency has sent a message warning of a period of heavy rainfall from midday Thursday into Friday morning. There is the potential for some Flood Alerts being issued for parts of Cumbria during this period. This means that flooding is possible to low lying land and roads.

There may also be a possibility of some Flood Warnings being issued, however the EA will monitor the forecasts closely for likely impacts and will issue warnings accordingly.

General Advice

Be flood ready. It is important that you are prepared for flooding and we encourage you to take 3 simple steps:-

  1. Sign up to the Flood Warning Service to receive free flood warnings.
  2. Know what to do when a flood warning is issued. We encourage you have a personal flood plan for you and your family
  3. Keep an eye on the situation. You can view a 5 day weather forecast and monitor river and sea levels online at https://flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/ and www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/
