Wednesday 7th November 2012

Earlier this month the Environment Agency and Met Office issued a flood warning for the whole of the UK. Our unusually wet summer has resulted in a heightened risk of flooding over the comming months.

As ground is saturated around the country plus higher than average river and ground water levels means that much less rainfall than usual is needed to top up water levels and cause flooding. The agency warms that all individuals and businesses should be ready for floods even with relatively small amounts of precipitation.

Everyone should check their flood risk and remain vigilant ~ for more information visit www.environment-agency.gov.uk/flood and sign up for their 'Flood Warnings Direct Service'
