The Environment Agency has produced online interactive maps to show areas that are
most likely to be at risk from river, sea, reservoir and surface water flooding.
View these online maps and search your local area here to find out how vulnerable
your property is.
According to the Met Office, intense downpours are becoming more and more common
, and when rainwater overwhelms the drains, it leads to flash flooding, also called
surface water flooding. In total, 3million properties in England are at risk of flooding,
and this increases to 5 million when those threatened by river and coastal floods
are also counted.
