Here we go again and worse to come in the next few days.
This Island of ours is surely shrinking by the Day, as coastal cliffs are also collapsing.This Video inland as the Fields are already saturated.

@LH there will be!!!! and there is talk of compulsory Water Meters.

@Scott about 25 miles but the whole SW Peninsula did and will not escape,as that particular flood was from 0.4.30.am, a months rain in three hours,commuter travel was chaos, even the Main Dual carriageways were under water.
and , don't even think of Rail Travel past Exeter ( runs alongside the above Video, collapse,) as that Line runs along the Coast and with the new trains they cannot cope with the Flooding.This is our main link to the Capital...
Teignmouth in July

This is calm!!!!

I am up on Dartmoor so whilst we are mainly granite hills we draw the rain, but it runs off.
Plymouth the next Large City down from Exeter was chaos yesterday..
Tomorrow and Monday we have worse to come.Teignmouth in July

I worked at both Start point, and Penlee FSS. They had moved the families out, but we still worked there. The places were falling down as we were there. Cliff erosion.
Never know where you will (or will not) wake up in the morning :)

Kate, awful.
Hope you well stocked up with the essentials, tea % biscuits etc. ( with the odd hot chocolate ).
As Johnny says Mother Nature is really having a nag worldwide at the moment.
There are so many costs / damages to consider, personal & financial and they can become endless.
Recovering from it is the nightmare.

What you needs, is battalions of camels, to mop it all up.
