Energee-Watch

The Severe Weather Impacts Monitoring System (SWIMS) is a web-based tool which helps organisations across Kent to build an evidence base and business case for taking action to address severe weather events. By using the tool, services can record important data on how they have been impacted and are responding to severe weather events (such as the financial impact on their operations). The tool also collects local weather and water data, which may help Kent partners to determine thresholds for severe weather events and flood events into the future
