Appeal for people affected by flash flooding to contact the council

The heavy storms which crossed Herefordshire last week caused flash flooding to a number of properties and left a number of roads impassable.

Herefordshire Council’s Resilience Team (which undertakes emergency planning) is aware of some of the areas affected - additionally the council’s contractors, Amey, had many workmen out helping in those parts of the county affected by flooding.

“But we’re sure there are other people who were affected that we don’t know about,” said Resilience Team member Alex Bartoszewicz.

“We’re asking people who experienced flooding in their properties to contact the council so that we can work together with the Environment Agency to help plan for the future and see if there is any assistance we can give now.

“We’re continuously updating our plans and the way we respond to incidents in consultation with the Environment Agency and there may be things we can learn by the way the flash floods developed,” he added.

People affected by flooding can contact the council on 01432 260000 or by filling out a flood incident reporting form at www.herefordshire.gov.uk/floods
