More rain forecast for weekend amid flood warnings
Now I am not saying I believe there is a connection although it is a little strange but I know you guys love a good conspiracy and would be interested to hear what you think.
Forecasters say heavy rain will continue over the weekend as widespread flood warnings continue to be issued across Great Britain.
BBC forecaster Jay Wynne said many places would have 50-75mm (2-3in) of rain on Saturday and Sunday, with some seeing 100-150mm.
There are flood warnings in place for south-west England, Wales, parts of north-east England and the Midlands.
Localised floods have already hit parts of Wales.
Huge floods in southern China have killed at least 132 people and displaced 800,000, the government said today as the annual storm season picked up ferocity.
Local media showed images of people abandoning their homes in rubber dinghies in Nanchang, Jiangxi province, one of the worst-hit areas.
Many carried bundles of possessions salvaged from the waters that turned the streets into rivers.
More than 10 million people have lost property, been injured or suffered a cut in power or water supplies as a result of the week of torrential rain across Guangdong, Fujian, Guangxi, Jiangxi and Sichuan.
Many of these areas have gone from one extreme to another, according to the government. Earlier this year, south-east China endured its worst drought in living memory, but in the past week, some places have been inundated with three times the average rain for this period.
