Report a Flood

Service status

On 24 December 2020, we were subject to a serious and complex cyber-attack, displaying significant stealth and malicious sophistication, which significantly impacted our organisation, our staff, our public and private partners, and the communities who rely on our services.

In the ten months since the attack, we have worked with Scottish Government, Police Scotland, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and the Scottish Business Resilience Centre (SBRC), to a clear recovery strategy.

Due to the cyber-attack we are currently unable to view, check or validate any flood reports. No flood reports will be published at this time.

No operational activity is undertaken on the basis of information submitted.

If you are concerned about your safety or the safety of others, please contact the emergency services. For other types of flooding support please contact the appropriate authority. Not sure who can help? Find out who to contact.

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.

If you have a complaint, please contact SEPA’s Contact Team on 03000 99 66 99.

For Report-a-Flood’s Terms and conditions please see the Disclaimer below.
