Popular Science News | UK Driest for Century | UK Wettest on Record!

It seems that UK weather in 2012 has been the most extreme on record! We joked about flooding during a drought but thankfully new flood defences saved nearly 50,000 homes from flooding; around 4,000 instead of 54,000. Weather experts say this weather, while not being man made, could be the pattern for the future, or at least for the next 20 years. Terry Marsh, from the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH), said there was no modern precedent for this pattern. The nearest comparison was 1903 but this year was, he said, truly remarkable.

Insurance companies are not taking flood defences into account when calculating premiums payable in flood areas. They use outdated statistics to calculate these and many homeowners are complaining that crazy premiums are being quoted for properties, for example, which are on hills in a flood area!
