The Environment Agency has launched a campaign to ensure North East businesses are prepared for flooding.
Since 1998 there has been at least one serious flood every year with businesses more likely to flood than be destroyed by fire. And with recent events such as 2012’s ‘Thunder Thursday’ hitting businesses hard the Environment Agency is working with them to reduce the impact of a flood.
The campaign launches with an event in Yarm next week and will culminate with an event in North Shields in October.
