In light of everything it is going on at the moment, this article speaks for itself.


Freak world weather patterns hits the North.

As surging river levels teetered near bursting point today, householders were bracing themselves against floods after heavy rainfall in northern England and Wales.
Temporary defences were put up following prolonged deluges yesterday that prompted the Environment Agency to issue 28 flood warnings in the worst-hit communities.
Forecasters have predicted more rain in northern regions today, adding to fears that some rivers could breach their banks

Thanks for the post.

Good luck to everyone in these trying times.

We have had our fair share of floods in the UK over the years,although nothing like the severity or scale of those happening in Queensland.
I think our recent UK snow blast was linked to the the same process though(el Nina).
She is fierce right now,and more devastation could follow.

Mother nature shows her hand is not always a gentle one.

My heart goes out to the folks in Australia and Brasil who have suffered the wrath of this.

Well my car didn't float away this morning, so we must be OK. If you are going to partake in a bout of fear mongering, do not use the Daily Mail as source Material as it is one of the worlds greatest works of fiction.

Can't see that post lasting long.

Don't know what the OP has done to you to deserve that personal attack but it sure has no place on ATS.

On topic.

Parts of the UK flood pretty regularly, York floods every year I think and who can ever forget the Boscastle flood of 2004.
www.youtube.com...

Still, nothing like they've had to endure in Australia and Brazil.
And no sharks in the UK....I think.

Dont judge a book by its cover, heard that phrase much?

Fear Mongering? It is widely being broadcast on the news, the OP is kindly showing this in light of the recent floods and extreme weather conditions.

Just like you said, disclosure has some good points and rather than spending your time degrading members, try to have an educated discussion instead.

What a useless post! Go sober up pal.

Back on topic. I've been wondering also if we're next in the UK, If we are there's not a lot we can do about it I reckon.

The Aussies were overwhelmed despite their massive land mass, so if it happens here, us brits will just have to stand and salute while our little island goes under.

Whatever will be, will be.

That's your opinion. Not a very polite one.

I enjoy reading the OP's posts, thanks for asking.

Back on topic.

It doesn't help that the last government allowed so much new house building to be done on flood plains.

Yes, UK gets floods most winters, and sometimes in the summer, so a flood warning is nothing new. There's nothing to suggest yet that this will be anything other than 'normal' problems, and nothing to suggest it is likely to be on the scale of the tragedies in Australia and Brazil.

The title of the thread is dishonest, imo, since it suggests something other than normal British winter weather, based on no fact. It's sensationalist headlines, like the cheap tabloid press....with a view to aquiring more stars? Tell me that's not the reason!
