Report a Flood

Service status

A sophisticated criminal cyber-attack has had a major impact on the way SEPA works. We are working through all the services that we provide to understand what we need to do in the short and longer term to restore services. We are approaching this work with a sense of urgency.

Due to the recent cyber attack we are currently unable to validate and verify flood reports. No flood reports will be published at this time.

You can still report a flood in the usual way and the information submitted can be used for post event analysis purposes in the future.

Please note that if you do report flood information, you will not receive an acknowledgement. We apologise for any inconvenience and hope to get the Report-a-flood function up and running again as soon as possible.


What is Report a Flood?

Report localised flooding with Report-a-Flood. Anyone can use this tool to inform others of flood incidents. Reports made to this webpage are not verified by SEPA. Those who wish to know what updates SEPA has put out should visit the Live Flood Updates page. 

There have been no floods reported in the last 24 hours.

If you are aware of flooding please report this now.
