Flooding is one of the most damaging natural disasters for our state’s economy – and even though South Australia has renowned a dry climate, many parts of Adelaide and the state can flood and do regularly.

If you live, work or are visiting a flood-prone area, there are some key things you can do now to prepare:

  • Know your local area — is there a history of flooding?
  • Learn where to go for safety and the safe routes to get there.
  • Keep a list of Emergency Contacts handy.
  • Put together an Emergency Kit including a battery-powered radio, torch and spare batteries.
  • Check your insurance policy is current and covers you for flood damage.
