The Environment Agency has a robust system for advanced warning of flood risk. The recent heavy rainfall in the UK and the approach of the low-pressure system that started life as Hurricane Lorenzo has led to the EA issuing over 250 flood risk warnings (at the time of writing). A further 90 have been removed in the last 24 hours.
There are three levels of flood risk warning:
If you own a property and have received warning that flooding is imminent, you should evacuate the building until such time as the warning is no longer in force.
At Flood Ark, we manufacture and install flood barriers that provide property level protection from flooding.
