SWIMS: new tool for identifying impacts and responses to severe weather in Kent
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.

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
