UK Flood (page 47)
'This scenario is based on a heavy rainfall event moving from west to east across south-east England resulting in extensive flooding of the River Thames from Oxford to Teddington with secondary flooding on the River Colne from Ruislip south and surface flooding on the western and southern edges of Heathrow.
The total flood extent covers 194 km2 and would cause significant impact on the towns of Oxford, Reading, Slough, and Henley areas of western London as shown in the figure below.
This event results in an estimated Industry Insured Loss of £6.2bn.'
