Why preparing your home for flooding matters




Floods can have devastating impact on your home and family: they can damage your property, destroy your valuable possessions, and even threaten your life. More than 30 000 people in Leicester are at risk of flooding. Such extreme weather events can happen at any time - there were floods only recently after the storms in the end of May 2018. POWER project is an initiative in cooperation with Leicester City Council that aims to help you become better prepared for flooding. Register to:
