Video: Why Does Calderdale Flood?

There are many different reasons why an area might flood but in Calderdale we are particularly at risk. Calderdale’s unique landscape makes it particularly vulnerable to floods. Rainwater runs down the hillsides into the River Calder, causing river levels to rise sharply. Understanding what makes each type of flood different will help you know what to do to protect yourself, as well as who to contact for assistance.
