The Flood situation across the UK is really pretty bleak. There were severe weather warnings again today, and for those floods hit areas, there is really no let up.
To experience flooding for one day must be tough..
But to have to endure that situation for days and days.. and for what could be months?.. I can only sympathise. That's awful.
I’ve never given much thought to flood defences before, but the environment agency seem to be blaming government cuts, and the government at one point attempted to blame the environment agency for giving poor advice. I don't know.. all I know is to be surrounded by rising water like that must be quite frightening.
I'm a Londoner, but I don’t think I ( or even us Londoners ) should be too complacent
I think it’s worth paying attention to what’s happening across England, and whether or not dredging the rivers would have prevented much of this as has been stated.
Especially as this little Island is surrounded by water!
Beautiful and scenic parts of the country knee deep in water. Homes destroyed. It’s heart-breaking for those going through it.
