The very first goal is protecting yourself and your family.

In many circumstances if the flooding in your area becomes severe you will be evacuated to safe centre or you can seek help by staying at a family or friends home. Generally follow advice from Disaster Companies on evacuation. If you remain in your house these tips may demonstrate helpful ways to cope with flooding in your home.

The plan will be to move living items to higher ground this means taking items that you will need on a day to day basis upstairs.

It is key to stay safe and stay warm throughout so please be aware of the flood water as It may be contaminated from sewage.

Switch off any energy source to the home until a competent electrician or power organization has examined the electrics. Use careful attention when coping with electricity. Please guarantee that buttons, sockets and devices are examined, particularly if they’ve been touching floodwater. Also please switch off the gas source to devices which have been flooded.

Floodwater may damage building structures seriously, especially if it has been hit by a flash flood or has held over 1 meter of flood water for a lengthy time.

Before entering home that’s been flooded, the structure should really be tested for signals of damage.

Be cautious when going in and around a home that’s been flooded. Water and mud that has been left in a building over a period of time can hide dangers such as sharp objects. Please also be aware that floodwater can cover exposed manholes and pipes in streets, in addition to damaged containers or glass.

Never attempt to go through fast streaming water no matter the depth, many people misjudge which causes injury and in some cases fatalities. On foot and in vehicles flood water can be very dangerous, if travelling in floods is inevitable please be very cautions by moving slowly.

Quick fact: 6 inches range of quickly streaming water may overpower a 4×4 car.

Protecting your home couldn’t be easier by opting for the UK’s most reliable flood protection provider. UK Sandbags have a wide range of flooding products to help protect your property from flooding.

Oh, how woedurfnl! :

Oh, how woedurfnl! :) I taught for a few years before having children and I remember those very short and rushed lunch times (and not very fondly, either!). I'm sure I'll be having more grown-up bentos being posted here soon, as the weather is warming up we will be on-the-go more than ever and the lunches will march on. :)Thank you so much for your kind words!
