Further locations will be announced in due course and can be found on the Council’s website at www.allerdale.gov.uk/floodadvice .

Flood sacks are items which swell when placed in water and can act as a barrier, much like a sand bag, to divert water. When dry they are light and reasonably flat so they can be stored for when they are required.
