Flood Alert for Puddington Residents

Published: 21st January 2021 08:35

There is a flood alert in place for residents of Puddington, meaning preparations are required.

 

Flood Alert

 

All of the usual advice applies like:

  • have a bag ready with vital items like medication in case you need to leave your home;
  • check you know how to turn off your gas, electricity and water mains supplies;
  • plan how you'll move family and pets to safety.

You can check your flood risk and sign up for flood warnings by following @EnvAgency and #floodaware on Twitter or you can call Floodline on 0345 988 1188.

One helpful reader, who has already spoken with Floodline, says to "block up any air bricks to your property because, if water gains access through them, it can get into the wall cavities and create structural damage."

It appears that the council have no spare sandbags and are managing a queue for areas/people in need.

Could the bus stop in Puddington be used to store sand bags going forwards, if residents are able to source them privately?

Water pumps are in use in the area, where available, to pump water away from the houses and in to the fields.

It's worth knowing that there is zero provision for sandbags to be provided to home owners from local authorities.

The council workers will use sand bags to try and divert flood water as effectively as they can to reduce the risk to people and property but it is not their remit to provide to home owner's.

The Environment Agency use theirs to reinforce river banks and flood defence structures.

If you live in an area where flooding is even a remote possibility then holding a stash of sand bags somewhere and flood boards for doors and gates is probably an essential consideration.

You need to log in before you can do that! It's only a quick registration process to join the AMA network and completely free.
