You must be a website administrator, and have access to change the HTML/templates on your website, to use this.
If you are unsure how to add this to your site, please contact your website administrator in the first instance.
The widget uses "http-equiv=refresh" to update the content every 10 minutes. The refresh command means that the Environment Agency web page is reloaded every 10 minutes, Not your own website.
The Flood Widget uses data from the Environment Agency Flood Warning Information System 'FWIS'. Users of the Flood widget should be aware that if the FWIS service is unavailable due to scheduled maintenance or service interruption (however caused) this would result in a temporary loss of the data for this service during this period of downtime.
