How to Prepare for Floods and Flooding

According to the Environment Agency, over five million people in England live and work in properties at risk of flooding from rivers, whilst more face flood threats from groundwater, surface water, sewers, and reservoirs.

Despite this, there are steps that you can take to keep water out, to buy yourself time to preserve property and possessions, and to limit the damage that flood water does.
