A real-time flood map has gone online in order to allow people to track areas that are in danger of flooding.

The online map, called FloodAlerts, offers people real-time updates on their risk of being flooded.

The system uses data from the Environment Agency’s nationwide network of monitoring stations in order to piece together a real-time map of the weather.

Searches can be carried out by postcode or simply by browsing the map of the British Isles in order to see flood alerts and flood warning statuses.

The system was originally launched on Facebook in April and has since managed to total 2,000 likes. However, the standalone website totalled 100,000 hits in its first four hours alone.
