I have been signed up for this for some while now, as our home was flooded unexpectedly from our local "ordinary watercourse" (as described by the EA) in 2002.

The system is very effective, I get a meesage on both my landline and my mobile, at any time of the day or night.

However, I do get a feeling sometimes that it is a case of "Cry Wolf" as we get warnings, at differing levels (urgent/ not so urgent) and most times we are lucky enough not to have been close to flooding.

All comes down to you own flood plan, and ensuring that the EA and, in my case local landowners, carry out their responsibilities in maintaining water courses.

I just tried to sign up for this service only to discover that it is not offered for my address.


My property has been flooded twice (almost three times) in the last nine years and my insurance company - Saga - have put on a £1,750 excess for flood on my policy. :-x
