Flood Warnings Mapped - Environment Agency

Flood Warnings Mapped - Environment Agency


The Environment Agency are now mapping flood warning locations to a fairly high degree of accuracy. A step in the right direction and giving the public access to this information is way forward.

Flood Warnings Summary - Environment Agency
The main page now gives a overall summary for England and Wales.

Categories are:
  • Severe Flood Warning
  • Flood Warning
  • Flood Watch
  • All Clear

Clicking or searching on town/postcode will launch the mapping window where the user can pan and zoom around and see areas which show the actual location with a digitized polygon as the warning area. The mapping seems faster and clearer than a few years ago. Will be very useful when the floods come back. The site is update frequently and serves it's purpose well.

Yet to see a 'Severe Flood Warning' on the map.
You would think a flood warning to be yellow and severe to be red wouldn't you and an all clear be green?
