Welcome to FloodList

This site was set up to offer information on all aspects of floods - from the causes to dealing with the effects - as well as be a community to those affected by floods.

We have tried to include news, views and information about how to look for and prepare for flooding in all areas of the world, with sections on flood insurance in USA and UK, flood protection, recovery and generally how to deal with flooding should your home and community be affected.

We hope our visitors find it a useful resource and feel inspired to comment and share their views and experiences.

Our main focus is to look at floods and flooding from a human perspective rather than a scientific viewpoint.

In other words, we try to look at how floods affect people and communities across the world, what we can do to prepare for them, and how best to cope with the aftermath.
