There are just over 1 million people in the Anglian Region who live and work in properties at risk of flooding. Are you one of them?
Are you prepared for flooding?
Find out if you are at risk of flooding by putting your postcode into the search box on the right of this page.
We measure river and sea levels across England and Wales by collecting data from our monitoring stations along the rivers and the coast. You can look at a map of Anglian to find out the river levels near you.
How to be prepared
If you are at risk, there are lots of things you can do to prepare before a flood happens.
These won't take long to do and will save time in a flood emergency.
Working in partnership
In Anglian much of our work focuses on working with our partners to achieve shared outcomes.
We work closely with Local Resilience Fora (LRF). LRF are made up of a number of organisations such as the Local Authority, Police, Fire & Rescue, Ambulance Service, Primary Care Trusts and the Environment Agency. We work together to ensure there is a planned and co-ordinated approach to potential emergencies, including flooding.
For more information about preparing for all types of emergencies click on the link below to your Local Resilience Forum:
We also work in partnership with charities to educate communities about the risks of flooding. One of the partners we have worked with recently is The British Red Cross.
In Anglian we are also currently working with the WRVS on a project to use their volunteers to go out and talk to older people about being prepared for a flood. For more information on how the WRVS support communities, particularly before, during and after an emergency go to WRVS website.
