Flooding Alert

 To think that we were under a risk of drought at the beginning of the year is now quite unbelievable! The amount of rainfall accumulated over the last week in the UK has caused severe flash flooding in parts, affecting both hundreds of home and business owners with devastating affects, and has even cost lives. 

 Every morning I tune into the news to find yet more footage of the floods, but today the Environment Agency report that the weather conditions are steadily approving. Below I have collected some news sites that contain relevant information on the floods.
