Weather Related Calls 27th July

27th July 2018

Here you will find details of weather related calls for the 27th July. We will update this with details of weather related incidents throughout the day, when we are able.

Safety Advice

With localized flooding possible we're asking that people don't drive through flooded roads if they don't know how deep the water is. We would also that that people drive considerately as driving fast through large puddles/ flood water in built up areas can cause bow waves that then enter properties.

Unplug non-essential electrical appliance sto avoid damge from power surges caused by lightning

If it's safe to do so clear guttering of debris to help reduce the chances of flooding

Check on those who might be vulnerable such as elderly friends/relatives and neighbours.
