As I write this, storm Desmond is dropping record quantities of rain over northern England and Scotland. I can imagine little worse than having your home or business flooded out, especially at this time of the year. My heart bleeds for those affected, who may be without homes for months and, even when they get back, there is the ongoing threat of it all happening again. There is also the worry over insurance. No, flooding is going to become a major issue in the years ahead.
