Flooding


Heavy rains over the weekend have left the town of Morpeth in Northumberland under water, together with many other places in England. A girl of 17 died when the car she was in got swept away by floodwaters in Powys, Wales. Four more fatalities occurred as a result of the severe weather. An extensive report can be found here.

  6. How awful for those folks.  What a mess they have on their hands.  At least our houses are on very high ground and it is just the pond area that floods here.
