There are currently no flood warnings in place for the
Peterborough City Council will prioritise the issuing of
sandbags to areas of critical infrastructure and locations where there are known vulnerable people,
these specific locations will have been identified to be at
imminent threat from fluvial (river) flooding. Once these areas
have been safeguarded the city council will endeavour to accumulate
sufficient sand bags to be made available to the public, again,
where identified as being at imminent threat from flood waters.
It still remains the individual property
owner’s responsibility to take mitigating action to protect their
property from flooding.
What to do if flooding occurs
More details on what you should do when
flooding occurs can be found on the
Environment Agency website.
Driving through flood waters
There have been numerous incidents throughout
Cambridgeshire of drivers becoming stranded after attempting to
drive thorough flood waters. Drivers are reminded that driving
through flood water can be extremely dangerous as it is impossible
to see how deep the water is and whether there are any submerged
hazards which could damage your car or leave you stranded.
Drivers who ignore road closure signs will
be prosecuted by the Police if caught.
