Stay safe by following the advice of the emergency services during a flood.
Contact the emergency services or your local council if you need support to leave your home.
Your local council may have sandbags that you can use. Some councils may charge you for them.
You can also make your own sandbags if your council doesn't have any.
There's a guide on the GOV.UK website about filling sandbags and how to use them.
You can get up-to-date information about flooding on Floodline's website.
If you'd rather call to get a local flooding update, the website also has a phone number for your area.
Your local council will run reception centres if you're evacuated from your home. These will give you somewhere safe to go.
Your council should arrange temporary accommodation if you don't have anywhere to stay. They'll be busy so you may need to get in touch with them.
If you need to travel during flooding check flood warnings and live travel updates.
For train, boat and air journeys check the website of the company you're travelling with for updates.
