Flooded Roads Map

The best way to avoid floodwater is to make sure you are prepared – whether that’s staying in or finding a safer alternative route to travel.

The Flooded Roads Map is a tool to help you plan a safer route from A to B. It uses data submitted by users to show you which roads on your journey are prone to flooding. Scroll down, enter your postcode and get prepared.

Disclaimer: This map is not designed to provide real-time flood data. Information is collated from a range of sources with varying degrees of credibility. Any action you take based upon the information is at your risk. Please see full disclaimer.
