Am I at risk from flooding?

How will the flood affect me?




Flooding will affect you and your family both financially and emotionally. Damage to your property is only part of the cost of flooding. Repairs, restoration and cleaning up, as well as temporary accommodation for your family while work is being carried out, can all push up the cost. The period after a flood can be a very stressful time as you realise the extent of the damage and the loss of personal items, on top of trying to organise workers to repair and clean up your property.

Just 150 mm (6 inches) of fast flowing water can knock you off your feet.
