Google Chrome Widget

The Google Chrome Widget was developed to allow quick and easy access to live flood warnings in force across England and Wales from a web browser. Google Chrome users can go to the Google Web Store and type in 'flood warning' to download the Flood Warning 'App'. Users can also add the 'Flood Warning Extension' which provides a widget in the browser tool bar. These services provide two new channels for people at flood risk to access flood warning information from the Environment Agency.
