Areas of the city known to experience localised flooding have already been checked, and gullies cleared of any leaf litter and debris to ensure affected roads are able to drain any excess water as quickly as possible. Our emergency teams are also on stand-by ready to respond quickly to any reports of flooding in the city if the heavy rain that is forecast arrives.
