A GROUP has been set up to study how Cambridgeshire will be affected by global warming and predicted changes in weather patterns.
Gales, storms, heat waves and heavy rain are just a selection of the severe weather events that are predicted to become a frequent occurrence in the East of England.
The changing climate is expected to significantly impact upon the environment and economy.
To understand how severe weather events will impact upon Huntingdonshire, the Cambridgeshire Climate Change Partnership, of which Huntingdonshire District Council (HDC) is a member, is completing a Local Climate Impacts Profile.

The group will look back at severe weather events in Cambridgeshire over the past 10 years, and identify the risks of weather to services, organisations and local communities in the district.
HDC, along with key partners, will then take steps to reduce these risks and the vulnerability of the groups and people exposed to them.
