iPhone : With #BostonBarrier being a key #UK national infrastructure project work still progresses on site whilst ensuring we work within the guidance as set by Government to ensure everyone’s safety. The primary barrier can now be seen and work proceeds to bring down both cells.

Twitter for iPad : There’s much in the world that can feel strange and gloomy at the moment - but here’s a glimmer of joy for those living with flood risk - from Friday our flood outlook is showing as green ‘low risk’ - the first time for 50 days!

iPhone : We all face challenging times with #COVID19 - but flood risk is still out there and needs managing. So a first today - I’m presenting at the FCERM stakeholder forum covering all sectors of flood resilience virtually! Still lots of interest - thanks for joining and the great Qs

Twitter for iPad : Due to the second highest tides of the year the #ThamesBarrier will be closing tonight (10th March from 22:30) and tomorrow (11th March from 11:30 to about 18:00). If you haven’t seen the Barrier ‘doing its thing’ - try and pop along and see…

Twitter for iPad : There’s been lots of talk recently about the #LowerAireWashlands, they’re much more complex than I can fit in 140 characters so here’s an Environment Agency blog that explains the whole system a little better 👍🏽…

Twitter for iPad : Ok another week, another band of rain. We have a combination of river flood risk, surface water, 2nd highest tides of the year and groundwater flooding. Significance should be lower than pervious weeks but still today is the day to sign up to our warnings…

iPhone : With the Prime Minister in Bewdley today with Environment Agency & emergency services teams working to help people through devastating flooding. Great to hear about £5.2 billion for flood protection and £200m for innovation in #flood resilience in Wednesday’s Budget. #PrepareActSurvive
