Avoiding the floods this Christmas

A multi-agency Strategic Coordination Group has been set up in order to combat an extended spell of consistent rainfall which is expected to fall in Cumbria over the Christmas period.
Whilst the rainfall is not likely to be near the amount that fell during Storm Desmond, it will again be falling on already saturated ground and is likely to cause surface water flooding on roads across the county.Keep up-to-date with the weather at  and the latest flood situation at  or follow @EnvAgency and #floodaware on Twitter for the latest updates.
