Flooding affects up to one third of all properties in Newcastle, so it's important to be aware of your flood risk at home, work, school and other places you visit frequently. It can also occur quickly - sometimes there is less than an hour of warning between the beginning of a storm and the onset of flooding.

Be prepared - know what to do before, during and after a flood.
