Plan ahead for flooding:

During a flood:

Suffolk County Council do not provide sandbags - they provide emergency help with pumping out properties when flooded ( priority to those with a risk to life). All their teams are out working at the moment.

Telephone 0345 6066171 to report a flooded property that needs help.
