Much of the United Kingdom experienced extremely cold temperatures this week. Where there was precipitation (and in some parts of the South East of England and Scotland there was a lot!) it fell as snow. Disguising the towns, cities and countryside in a uniformly beautiful white blanket, snow looks great for photos on your Instagram account! But when it thaws, all that water has to go somewhere...
In combination with other factors, melting snow can lead to localised flooding events. These are the conditions to look out for:
At Flood Ark, we manufacture and install flood barriers that offer property level protection for homes and businesses at risk of flooding. We designed them so they could be deployed quickly in conditions where flash flooding, river flooding or coastal flooding is likely to occur. They have been thoroughly tested in the laboratory and in genuine emergencies.
Call us on 01603 879977 to arrange for our survey team to assess the flood risk to your property. Alternatively, if you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
