Environment Agency introduces flood warning service across West Midlands

 Thursday, June 1, 2023 


New flood warning services across the West Midlands have been reported by the Environment Agency stating of almost 13,000 additional property owners of risk of flooding.

As part of the project, flood warnings have been set up for Iiley Brook, Lutley Gutter, and the River Stour in Halesowen to warn people about an imminent risk of flooding to their homes or business.

Ian Jones, Environment Agency area flood and coastal risk manager for the West Midlands declared that they want to ensure everyone has as much time as possible to prepare for flooding which is why they were pleased that there are more communities across the West Midlands that will now be able to receive their free Flood Warning service.

However, there are three types of messages – flood alert, flood warning, and severe flood warning which can be triggered by severe weather or river conditions.

Residents are encouraged to prepare if they receive a flood alert which could mean packing a bag with medicines, insurance documents, and anything else they wouldn’t want to lose if flooding occurred.
A severe flood warning means immediate danger and to follow advice from emergency services.
