A third of Cornish families are being warned they are at risk of flooding.

Campaigners claim many of us are not aware, and want us to do more to protect our homes.

It is because of a change in government rules, which could mean insurance will be harder to get.

Mary Donhau speaks for the Know Your Flood Risk campaign. 

She says, "People will start paying more money if they're deemed at significant risk of flooding, and that's why this guide from the Know Your Flood Risk campaign is so essential for the homeowners that may well find themselves stung." 

"People that are out of their homes for, say nine months, and the worst case, two years. So actually taking steps to protect your property can reduce the emotional impact of being flooded as well as getting this insurance industry to smile more sweetly on you."

See if you are at risk here.
