The UK Flood Warning Map
God really does hate the English speaking world. While north America freezes in a polar vortex and Australia melts under record high temperatures the UK slowly sinks under a deluge of rain.
As the last day without rain in the UK fades from living memory it has now become customary for every Briton on waking each morning to quickly consult a flood warning map.
The UK Environment Agency's Live Flood Warning Map provides the most up-to-date information of the risk of flooding throughout England. Flood warnings are color-coded on the map to show the severity of the warning. If you click on a marker you can view the full details of the selected warning. The alerts themselves are updated every 15 minutes.
