We bring you quite a short blog posting today but one that is none the less important - a new FloodAlerts website.

With all the very heavy rain expected over the coming hours and days (while the summer goes AWOL), a brand new FloodAlerts website has been launched by Microsoft partner Shoothill. Based upon their recent FloodAlerts Facebook App, the Bing Maps-powered FloodAlerts website provides the very latest flood information from the Environment Agency.

It's incredibly powerful and what's more, it is an immensely useful tool and could even save lives.

Check out the new FloodAlerts website here and just as importantly, please share this with your colleagues, family and friends.
