Surface water flooding
Surface water flooding, often referred to as flash flooding, can happen to anyone, you don't have to live in a flood risk area to be affected.
When a large amount of rainfall overwhelms the drainage system, it cannot cope or may become blocked with debris, and any excess water could quickly find its way into your property. This can happen without much warning and it is difficult to predict accurately where heavy rain is likely to fall.
With a little bit of planning you may be able to avoid the worst and put measures in place to minimise damage to your property.
