Winter weather can be beautiful, but in reality, we experience a whole range of severe weather that can have a major impact on us and our communities. There are practical ways in which you can be prepared for this.
By taking simple steps, such as signing up to The Met Office's National Severe Weather Warning Service, members of the public can ensure they keep warm, healthy and safe this winter.
Stay weather aware this winter by following the Met Office on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and YouTube for the latest weather information. You can also sign up for severe weather alerts through the Twitter Alerts programme, providing critical information directly to your phone.

You can also sign up directly for flood alerts form the Environment Agency, and receive alerts not only for your area, but also for the areas of vulnerable family or friends. https://fwd.environment-agency.gov.uk/app/olr/home
