How we prepare for flooding
- we receive information from the Met Office, the Environment Agency and the Flood Forecasting Centre
- we get together with other agencies across Greater Manchester to make sure we are as prepared as possible
- we put in place a flood plan
If you live in an area of flood risk make sure you have the correct home insurance cover in case your property floods. The cost of recovery after a flood is on average £20,000. The Flood Re website has been set up to help those households who live in a flood risk area to find affordable home insurance.
