Author: Environment Agency Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
The weather over Christmas 1999 period caused significant flooding across Southern Region. Hundreds of homes were identified for evacuation and in excess of 100 properties were flooded. In terms of flood warning the Region made 72,000 calls with its AVM equipment - the largest direct public warning exercise since the London blitz and issued over 180 Flood Warnings. The review is intended to be short and sharp, concentrating on the successes to highlight best practice and to identify areas for improvement. The review will confirm the adequacy of existing processes and procedures for the delivery of a seamless and integrated forecasting, warning and response service. The outputs of the review will be forwarded to the national EFAG and CNFDR projects to support this work. The outputs will also provide guidance for the sites where the PA Survey(s) will be undertaken.
