Communities are being urged by the Environment Agency to make sure they know their flood risk amid increased extreme weather events.
After this year’s record-breaking weather, the Agency launched its annual awareness campaign – Flood Action Week – as making just one small change can reduce the effects on homes and families and even save lives.
Around 5.5 million homes and businesses in England are at risk of flooding and climate change is only increasing the dangers. It is clear we are already seeing the impacts of the climate crisis around the world and in the UK through wetter winters and hotter, drier summers.
Meanwhile, CIWEM is offering free training for homeowners impacted by flooding as a result of storm Babet.
