I doubt any response agencies are asking for help, it's not in our 
nature ;-)

Yes the underlying maps are very good but what needs mapping are the 
highways that are now unpassable, or only if you've got a 4x4 or Tractor 
and what areas the water is covering.  Just like any HOT activation this 
is invaluable data to relief workers or in the case of the UK to the 
population themselves who have ready access to mobile internet.
