If you hear or receive a warning

  • Stay calm - tune in to BBC Radio Norfolk
  • Tell your neighbours (especially if they are elderly or have special needs)
  • Fasten your outer doors and fix any flood protection devices
  • Switch off gas and electricity only if they are in a location that has not been flooded

  • Take food, clothes, blankets, candles/torches with you
  • Fill bath and buckets with water in case mains supply is shut off
  • Drinking water should be stored in clean containers
  • Try to move valuable objects to a place of safety or protect them by tying them into plastic bags
  • Remember the pets (food, dirt tray and cage)
  • If you live in a bungalow arrange to shelter with neighbours who have "upstairs" accommodation
  • Take essential medicines, infant care items, personal documents/identification for each member of the family
