UK flood warning map: Delivering Up-To-Date Information

The UK Environment Agency provides data from its many nationwide monitoring stations that issue flood warnings and alerts. All of the most recent alerts (within 15 minutes) are displayed on an interactive map, alerting citizens of potential hazards while additionally offering them a custom alert function that sends warnings right to their Facebook accounts if there is a flood warning near home or a place of work.
