About Floodline

Floodline, in Scotland, is operated by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA). It provides live flooding information and advice on how to prepare for or cope with the impacts of flooding 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our telephone service and website can be accessed by everyone but by registering with us you can receive free flood messages for your area of interest direct to your phone. 

When you are signed up to Floodline and flooding is forecast in your area, we will send you a message by phone or text, advising that a Flood Warning or Flood Alert has been issued and where to go to find out more about the flooding situation. You can call Floodline on 0345 988 1188 or visit http://floodline.sepa.org.uk/floodupdates/ for live information.

Receiving advance notice of flooding means that you have time to prepare and reduce the impact of flooding on your life and your property.

In Scotland 108,000 properties are at risk of flooding as well as the impacts to local roads and community facilities when flooding happens. We can all be affected by flooding so be prepared and know what to do by using Floodline.
