Almost 5 million people in England are at risk of flooding. This is only going to increase with a changing climate. Many people think that flooding will never happen to them – but it could.

There are 3 simple steps you can take to be better prepared for flooding:
- Use the Environment Agency’s maps to find out if you’re at risk from flooding.
