Be Prepared: Flooding

Be PreparedHomepage

Almost 11,000 properties in the county are at 1% risk in any year from river flooding (1 in 100 year event). Even if your home is not directly at risk from flooding, we can all be affected by the consequences of an unexpected event. 

Surface water or flash flooding, usually resulting from torrential rain over a short space of time, can cause much disruption. Unlike river flooding, surface water flooding is much more difficult to predict.
