Title: Floodlink : Midlands region : Issue 2 - Winter 2002
Author: Environment Agency Midlands Region
Document Type: Monograph
Abstract:
This is the second Environment Agency newsletter of "Floodlink". This document aims to promote concern about flooding in Midlands region. With scientists predicting flooding to happen more regularly in the future, due to climate change, people need to be prepared. In 2002, the country experienced very stormy, wet weather, resulting in just under 600 flood warnings being issued in the Midlands, over 100 of which were issued over the Christmas period. Flooding has been experienced in parts of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire. Whilst the Environment Agency builds and maintains flood alleviation schemes, we can only help reduce the risk of flooding. The Agency does offer support and provides information to help people prepare for flooding, to minimise its impact on their lives. This newsletter is just one way to help you prepare.
