Statistics published by the Met Office show 2012 was the second wettest year in the UK, compared to records dating back to 1910. Surface and river flooding caused extensive disruption and damage throughout the country.
While you can't completely flood-proof your home, you can reduce the impact by taking a few precautions. And if you have any vulnerable neighbours, always ask if they need assistance before and after a flood.
The following organisations can advise if your home is in a flood risk area:
If your home is at risk, sign up to a flood warning service or listen out for flood warnings on local radio and television.
Preparing for flooding can benefit you, your family and your home.
You can also purchase purpose-built equipment such as flood boards for doors and air brick covers. If you do buy any such flood protection products, make sure they display the British Standards Institution (BSI) Kitemark or comply with the BSI specifications PAS 1188-1:2009 or PAS 1188-1:2009 (Flood protection products).
Putting things right after a flood can be very expensive and time-consuming. AA Buildings Insurance can cover your home against damage caused by flooding.
