New on–line flood map 15 December 2011
Online Flood Maps have been updated with information now available on areas across the north that may be affected by flooding from rivers, sea and now rainfall.
The Strategic Flood Map also gives helpful information on the location of flood defences already in place to reduce risk and is intended to increase awareness among the general public, local authorities, utilities and other organisations about the risk of flooding. This is to enable them to be better prepared to take appropriate action to reduce the impact of flooding.
The new easy–to–navigate on–line Flood Maps are colour coded and contain five distinct map layers with information on historical flood events, predictive illustrations of present day flood risk from rivers, coastal and surface water, as well as the location of flood defences.
The Strategic Flood Map can be accessed via the Rivers Agency website
