The most severe floods occurred across Northern Ireland on 12 June- East Yorkshire and The Midlands on 15 June- Yorkshire, The Midlands, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire on 25 June- and Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire and South Wales on 28 July.

Civil and military authorities described the June and July rescue efforts as the biggest in peacetime Britain. The Environment Agency described the July floods as critical and expected them to exceed the 1947 benchmark.
