Extreme Weather: The Somerset Floods

Media: DVD
DUR: 28 mins
Product Code: SOMER
Price: £49.00

In the winter of 2013/2014 the UK was hit by a succession of 13 low pressure systems causing extreme flooding on the Somerset Levels.  This DVD looks at the human and physical causes of the floods and explores the impacts on property and lives through the first hand accounts of local residents and businesses.   We also assess examples of both hard and soft engineering and see how they are being used to improve resilience to future flood events on the Levels. Dredging, pumping, tidal barriers and catchment sensitive farming are all considered.
