There is no known pre-Worboys warning sign for floods.
Worboys Report sign
The flood sign specifically referred to here is almost always a temporary sign, hinged at the top with the 'Try Your Brakes' sign on the reverse. Both signs simply consist of the words within the red warning triangle. The sign is therefore referring specifically to the present danger of a flood on the road ahead (although they can be left out once the flood has drained).
The 'Try Your Brakes' sign may also be used on the further side of a Ford, and while modern brakes are less prone to fade when wet than brakes of 20 or 30 years ago, it is still a potential danger.
On roads where flooding is a common occurence, the Other Danger or '!' warning sign is used as a permanent fixture on the road side. The plate attached is normally 'Road Liable to Flooding' or 'Llifogydd yn Debygol ar y Fford' as the Welsh language variant.
Temporary signs may also feature the '!' with the plate 'Flood' below on rare occasions.
The Irish do not appear to have a specific warning sign for floods, although they almost certainly experience the problem.
