This afternoons tidal surge hasn't had as much of an impact as predicted. Some roads were closed as a precautionary measure and Kent Council Council are beginning to open them where possible. Stay safe. We continue to ask everyone to remain vigilant and check on vulnerable and elderly neighbours.
Keep checking your local news and radio and for updates from the Environment Agency website.
View the message from Council Leader, Councillor Andrew Bowles.
Our emergency rest centre at the West Faversham Community Centre, Bysing Wood Road, Faversham, Kent ME13 7RH has now stood down.
Motorists are advised not to attempt to drive through flooded roads. People are also advised to avoid coastal and river paths.
People needing urgent assistance in an emergency are advised to call 999 OR call floodline: 0845 988 1188.
For the latest updates please contact visit the Environment Agency website or call their Floodline on 0845 988 1188 for the latest flood warnings in your area.
Advice is also available from Kent County Council.
Areas within Swale can flood in certain conditions (heavy rainfall coinciding with an unusually high tide). Information and flood warnings are available on the Environment Agency's website or call them on on 0800 80 70 60.
If your road floods during heavy rainfall, please report it using the Kent County Council online maintenance form so we can try and rectify the problem.
The Council do not provide sandbags so if you think your property is at risk of flooding you should make your own arrangements.
