Government Taking Every Measure to Prepare for Flooding Risk

Today in Parliament Therese received assurances from the Government that every measure is being taken to help those that could be affected by the potential floods along the East Coast.

Therese said: "Residents and businesses in our coastal communities will be bracing themselves as severe flood warnings have been issued. The Government today reassured me that the Secretary of State for the Environment, Owen Paterson MP, is considering every measure to help those who could be affected. The Prime Minister has also asked the Secretary of State to chair a meeting of COBRA to ensure that a fast response is deployed if needed. Thanks to the Environment Agency which has done a great job in issuing the advanced warnings."

Zurich have produced a guide for homeowners on how to prepare for a flood, which can be found here.
