If you have experienced flooding in Newcastle and have information, pictures or video footage that you would be happy to share, please contact us.  We already have quite a bit of detailed evidence about the areas of Newcastle that are at risk of flooding,  however, a large number of flood events still go unreported.  Knowing where there has been flooding across the City enables us to keep flood records up to date and assists with prioritising our work to reduce flood risks.  Complete our Flooding Questionnaire here online, or if you prefer complete a paper version and email or return to us by post.
