Severe Weather

Severe weather can come in many forms – rain, wind, snow, fog, severe cold or heatwave.

You can sign up for weather warnings through the Met Office.

In the event of severe weather:

  • If possible store some basic supplies
  • Keep pets indoors (bring outdoor pets in)
  • Close doors and windows and close curtains to protect against broken windows
  • Secure outdoor belongings such as bikes, garden furniture etc., or if possible bring them indoors
  • If the gas, water or electric stop working let the relevant service know – know who your suppliers are and have their contact numbers and your account numbers in a handy place
  • Warn vulnerable people in your community.  Help them prepare.
