The most valuable commodity in the world today, and likely to remain so for much of this century, is not oil, not natural gas, not even some type of renewable energy. It’s water—clean, safe, fresh water
Good job i live on a hill
The weather has caused more damage to the South West's rail network with a landslip on the Exeter to Waterloo line, Network Rail has reported.
It said the incident at Crewkerne in Somerset meant passengers could not get to Exeter by train.
In Dawlish, where waves destroyed the main railway line, shipping containers are being used as a breakwater.
Earlier coastguards warned of "phenomenal" waves of more than 45ft (14m) for the region.
Ben Bradshaw, the Labour MP for Exeter, tweeted: "Just got worse: Landslip shuts Waterloo line at Crewkerne - no trains at all in or out of the Westcountry. Nearest services Bristol & Yeovil."
Network Rail said it had spent the night spraying concrete onto the cliff and damaged sections of the track, which had connected Devon and Cornwall to the rest of the UK.
Looks like my local area is now set to get a tad on the soggy side.
This river is not far from my house, fortunately I live on a hill, but there is quite a few homes built alongside it.

It's really strange how little snow the whole of the UK has had this winter
