The Environment Agency is launching its ‘Flood Action Campaign’ with a ‘Flood Action Week’ from the 11th to the 17th November. In England, there are over 5 million homes at risk of flooding and the average cost of flooding to a home is around £30,000. Tragically, flooding, of course, also brings a significant risk to life. This year’s campaign focuses on “What the Flood” and focuses on helping people know what action to take in a flood, based on the ‘Prepare. Act. Survive.’ flood guide.
