This is not an exhaustive  list and should you find flood water blocking your way then do not attempt to drive through it and find an alternative route.

Where roads are closed, obey those closures and find an alternative route. Using these roads will endanger you and any emergency services staff who have to attend to rescue you when you become stranded.
