Flood Warnings

Are You At Risk of Flooding?

15 September 2015

Sandbags information

It’s a good idea to establish whether you are at risk of flooding or not.  In 2014, local authorities, builders merchants and sandbag suppliers run out of sandbags for flood defence because of the overwhelming demand for them.  It’s been argued that if people in their homes and businesses were more prepared, this wouldn’t have been the case. Simple prevention measures are much better than a cure should floods or storms hit.

It’s not just the larger floods that you need to pay attention to, there are many areas around the UK that are deemed in danger of surface water flooding, which happens when heavy rain doesn’t drain properly and flows over the ground.

In December 2013 the environment agency release a new feature of their flood risk map where surface water flooding was included as well as showing risk areas from rivers and the sea.  It worth checking it out as 3 million homes in England alone are at risk of surface water flooding.

In other words even if you are miles away from a river or stream, you could still be at risk of flooding, so stocking up on sand filled sandbags or self inflating sandbags is definately a good move.

You can visit to view their flood risk map, or if you don’t have access to the internet you can call the flood line on 0845 9880118 and get one posted out to you.

Many people will identify that they are in a flood risk area and then monitor the environment agencies website for flood alerts, however, homeowners are likely to only have minutes to react when a flood starts.  Back in 2013, along the River Humber, there was a tidal surge and the vast majority of people who were affected were only on an amber flood alert from the environment agency, not red.

If you are at risk of flooding then please make the necessary arrangements and prepare a flood plan.  This could be as simple as taking all valuable items upstairs when a storm is forecast, all the way through to the installation of permanent flood defence equipment.

The important thing is to know whether you are at risk of flooding.
