Historically, the areas which are most at risk from flooding are Grands Vaux, Tesson Mill, Vallee des Vaux and other low-lying areas, however all Islanders can help protect their own property by remaining vigilant.

People can help to protect their property from flooding by ensuring that the drains around your property are clear from debris. The emergency services are also asking people who have elderly or vulnerable residents or friends who live in areas which could be affected to make sure that they are safe.
