Rain-battered Britain is struggling to cope with rising flood levels after further heavy rain brought misery to thousands of residents and motorists across the UK. Since last Wednesday, around 900 people have fled their water-logged homes after deluges left many properties uninhabitable and also caused road and rail chaos. In the beleaguered city of St Asaph in North Wales, hundreds of residents were urged to pack their bags and leave their homes after the River Elwy reached record levels and surged through flood defences. The torrential downpours spread overnight from the South West to North Wales and northern England, leading to the Environment Agency issuing about 180 flood warnings and more than 200 flood alerts across the UK. There are also two severe flood warnings - meaning a potential danger to life - for the River Elwy in St Asaph and at the A55 to Rhuddlan. The Elwy, which was still rising this afternoon, has reached a record high of 14ft 3in (4.35m) at St Asaph, making it more than 3ft (1m) deeper than its previous record of 11ft 4in (3.47m) in November 2009.

There does indeed seem to be a lot of water. It's not getting too much play in the MSM here in the states. Figures. I guess we always associate big time weather with far off wild places. It pays to remember even someplace like GB is still at the beck and call of Mother Nature.
Good luck and stay dry
