Flood warning from the Met Office
Published: Thur, 18 Oct 2012
The Met Office has advised of heavy rain across most of Northern Ireland today with a risk of flooding.
Further heavy rain is expected through the morning and into the afternoon. With the ground already saturated in places the public should be aware that there is an increased risk of localised flooding, especially over some eastern parts.
If you are a Housing Executive tenant and your home is affected by flooding, call us on 03448 920 901 or report the problem online.
What to do if your house is flooded
If you find that water is coming into the house, check whether it's coming into contact with any electrical fittings. If this has happened, you should turn off the electricity supply in your meter cupboard immediately. Report the repair to us and we will send out an electrician.
If you discover that the roof is leaking, put a bucket under the leak with a plastic sheet underneath to protect the surrounding area.
