After Pirate FM told you about Cornwall's transport and flood management being "at risk" there is a yellow weather warning for rain.
A report claims extreme weather and crumbling infrastructure could leave the south-west vulnerable.
The Institute of Civil Engineers is demanding government action.
Spokesman Richard Fish says we need more money: "There's only two ways of funding. One is through taxes and one is through the user. So the individual pays in both ways but the priorities have got to be set by government and with things like flood defence it's very difficult to make the 'user' pay.
