Take care as Storm Babet causes flooding

20 October 2023

We’re urging people to take care and colleagues to work from home where possible as heavy rainfall from Storm Babet is causing flooding across the county.

Our highways colleagues are out dealing with issues on the roads and we expect more roads to be closed as the rain continues.

Please work from home if you are able to and don't travel unless it is essential. If you are currently working from one of our offices, please travel home soon rather than waiting until later in the day when flooding is likely to be worse. If you are a field-based worker, you should be prepared to change your travel plans.

If you do have to travel, never walk or drive through flood water.

We’re working with all the district and borough councils, and all the emergency services to coordinate work across Derbyshire.
