Share a flood observation

Main Project Information
Presented By Floodcrowd
Goal Map flood events across the UK
Task Share observations of floods
Where United Kingdom
Description

If you've seen a flood, no matter how big or small, old or recent, share it at floodcrowd.co.uk!
We've had observations of large floods from Kendal...
...and small pools in Watford
All these observations are important as they can help researchers understand the environment better. The records are forming an online database which will be available to all researchers and stakeholders.

How to Join

You do not have to register to share your observations: you can share information anonymously. However, it can be very beneficial to have an account with us so we can contact you if we need verification on anything or we want to take your concern to the relevant authorities.
