If you live or have property within a recoginsed flood risk location, you can also apply online for flood alerts from the Environmental Agency by landline or mobile phone.

The Environmental Agency is using cutting edge technology to include areas that are at risk from surface water flooding in their online maps. A major step forward in the ongoing battle against the disasterous affects of flooding. Flood watch continues throughout the UK.
