The met office prepares to reveal whether 2012 was the wettest year on record in the UK. Their analysis indicates that the heavy rainfall we are experiencing is creating "an upward trend" and that this type of extreme rainfall is the normally the sort of downpour you would expect once in 100 days.
This will have a long term effect in the construction industry as flooding will be a normal occurrence and we will have to consider the risks involved during works. Additionally as homes flood more insurances will go higher and this will have a knock on effect on costs for refurbishment projects.
