“We have been supporting companies with Business continuity products for over a decade and noticed year on year more and more companies become affected by the severe floods. We have been in touch with the national media, trade press and specialist flood agencies to put a framework in place and made a decision to host a single page directory ourselves in order to support UK Businesses. In addition we will be providing every company with some of our own Business continuity tools free of charge to further demonstrate our commitment and support against flooding.
In England, 5.2 million properties are at risk of flooding. Of these, 1.4 million are at risk from rivers or the sea alone, 2.8 million are at risk from surface water alone and 1 million are at risk from both. There are also an estimated 200 homes at risk of complete loss to coastal erosion in the next 20 years. It is possible 2,000 more could become at risk over this period.
