Flood damage can put an enormous financial burden on those who are unfortunate enough to be affected by it. Water damage to property and possessions can leave families thousands of pounds in debt.
Unfortunately, flooding has become all too common. With global warming bringing the threat of flooding to areas that were not affected before, more and more will be affected in the coming decades.
Those looking to raise money for flood repairs can turn to crowdfunding in situations where insurance does not cover the necessary expenses. Below are a number of people who have turned to crowdfunding to raise money for flood damage or to help communities or people affected by floods.
