Residents are encouraged to stay safe and keep vigilant around flood water.
If you come into contact or enter flood water, you could be at risk of illness, injury or drowning. Do not walk or drive through flood water and do not attempt to swim in flood water. If you do come into contact with flood water, wash your hands regularly and mention the flood if you see a doctor within 10 days for abdominal complaints.
Do not touch sources of electricity if you are standing in water and be aware of the dangers of petrol or diesel generators or similar as these can cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Do not eat food that has touched flood water. Do not eat fresh food from the fridge or freezer if your electricity has been turned off for more than four hours.
Flooding is stressful. It is normal to feel anxious or upset. Take care of yourself and your family. Check on elderly and vulnerable friends and neighbours.
