There are many types of severe weather that can have a serious local impact in Kent. The main types of severe weather that the Kent Resilience Forum plans for are storms and gales, low temperatures/heavy snow, heatwaves and drought.
As experience has shown, severe weather can take a variety of forms and at times can cause significant problems and disruption to normal life. The consequence of severe weather are varied, some common issues include road and travel disruptions, damage and disruptions to basic utilities, and damage to property. These have a knock on effect to individuals, businesses and the ability for organisations to deliver essential functions in the community.
