Don’t Get Caught Out With Flooding

There could be more misery in store for people living in areas affected by heavy rainfall, as Sunday’s unsettled weather looks set to return.

The Environment Agency, NRW and SEPA are concerned additional rainfall on already saturated ground could lead to more flooding and the public are advised to keep up to date with the latest flood warnings from the Met Office.

Low pressure systems are expected to move across the country this week. The first will have arrived late Monday before another brings stronger winds and rain today. There will be further bad weather as yet another system brings heavy rain on Wednesday.­Severe flood warnings are in place in Cumbria and parts off the North West.  The River Ribble burst its banks in Sawley causing flooding.

If you live in an area that may flood you need to be prepared.  Here at Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington you can make a start with the hessian sand bags that we have for sale.

Don’t think it won’t happen to you because it could, the weather is not set to get any better in the next few weeks so be prepared, flood damage is not nice to deal with!

Don’t rely on local authorities to give you sand bags, get your own and be prepared.
