Flooding in Berkshire

BBC Berkshire's interactive flood map

An overview of the Berkshire floods in July 2007 with photos, video and audio reports from our correspondents - all plotted on our interactive map of Berkshire.

The BBC Berkshire interactive flood map takes the best photos and video sent in by you to berkshire.online@bbc.co.uk, alongside reports from our correspondents around the county and flood warning information from the Environment Agency.

Have you been using the interactive map?

If you have used the interactive map, we'd appreciate your feedback - positive or negative - and your thoughts on how it could be improved in future.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the map.

Yellow line

HOW TO USE THE MAP

  • GREEN, YELLOW and RED LINES are flood alerts from the Environment Agency.

If the line is GREEN, the area has been given the all clear.
If the line is YELLOW, the area is under a Flood Warning.
If the line is RED, the area is under a Severe Flood Warning.

Please note flood alert information is updated 8am until 6pm. Outside these hours please refer to the Environment Agency's website. Lines are a guide based on Environment Agency advice only and are not absolute.

Gold house
  • GOLD HOUSES are locations of council emergency centres.

These are locations of emergency centres where, in the event of flooding, you will be able to find advice, help, shelter and other resources if your home is affected. Emergency centres are plotted on the map according to information from local councils. Some centres may not be open prior to flooding - please check with your council where possible.

Blue marker
  • BLUE MARKERS are photos sent to the BBC Berkshire team.

These photos show you how the flooding has been looking over the past days, but do NOT depict current conditions - please do not rely on them. Add your own photos to the map by sending them to berkshire.online@bbc.co.uk.

Green marker
  • GREEN MARKERS are videos posted to video sharing websites or sent to the BBC Berkshire team.

Click a green marker and you will be able to watch video of flooding taken from that point on the map. These videos do NOT depict current conditions - please do not rely on them. Send your video (or video sharing links) to berkshire.online@bbc.co.uk.

Red marker
  • RED MARKERS are audio reports from BBC Radio Berkshire correspondents.

We've sent our top reporters out to various points in and around Berkshire to find out more about the flooding. Listen to them using the red markers (requires Realplayer).
