Flooding: What to do during floods

Photo by Suzie Carrig 5/5/2016© ChildForum

 

Be prepared for floods to occur wherever you are located, but particularly if located in a low-lying area, near the coast, rivers and water, or downstream from a dam.

If sustained and hard rain follows a period of drought, flooding can occur as the ground struggles to absorb the rain and drains can often be blocked with leaves and dirt.

Flash floods can happen without warning.

 

Act quickly

Conditions can change rapidly

Check and clear drains for leaves and mud etc.

Collect buckets and containers and have these ready if you need them e.g. for roof leaks.

Check that your emergency kit, including clean water and food, is readily available if needed.

Reassure children, by explaining what's happening and treating it as a great experience rather than making them panic or worried.

 

Where there is flooding - what to do, what not to do, and what you need to know
