SEVERAL FLOODS AND LANDSLIDES IN UK!!! HOMES LOST AND OTHERS EVACUATED!!! 4 DEATHS!!!
Description
Ten homes have been evacuated after a large landslide caused by heavy rain in Old Sodbury, near Bristol. Several thousand tonnes of earth moved in the slip, which happened shortly after 08:00 GMT. People living in the houses have been taken to a local pub while engineers check the area. The police and fire service are also on the scene. The affected families included some with young children, according to the owner of the Dog pub. Another landslide on Friday, in Bath, led to the evacuation of several homes and a house lost part of its garden.

Extreme Weather in United Kingdom on Sunday, 25 November, 2012 at 14:44 (02:44 PM) UTC.

Description
The Met Office today issued a weather warning for Greater Manchester. The warning predicts heavy and persistent rain across the area and into parts of Cheshire and Lancashire later tonight. The yellow category warning - which urges motorists and the public to be aware of the forecast - is valid into Monday morning. It follows severe rainfall for the past two days in parts of south west England and heavy flooding. A woman died overnight and two others were seriously injured after a tree fell on them as floods and high winds battered areas around Exeter. The three were injured when a large spruce tree collapsed on to a road at 11.50pm. One woman was trapped under the tree and taken to hospital where she later died, Devon and Cornwall Police said. The tragedy follows the death of a man after his 4x4 became trapped under a bridge near a ford in a deluge in Chew Stoke, Somerset. Ten people were evacuated from the tiny community of Portholland near Mevagissey overnight after a landslip towards the east of the coastal village. The Environment Agency said 252 flood alerts were in place across England and Wales.

The Environment Agency issued a flood alert for the Middle River Mersey catchment area, warning areas in Stretford, Gatley, Cheadle Hulme and Cheadle may be affected. A spokesman said: "Due to persistent rainfall on Saturday the river levels have risen. As a result flooding to low-lying land and roads is expected during Sunday and into Monday. No property flooding is expected to occur." The spokesman said access to Ford Lane in Didsbury could be affected and added: "We will continue to monitor the situation and update when the situation changes." Police reported no weather-related incidents across Greater Manchester overnight. Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service also said there were no reports of flooding. But the Highways Agency warned of possible flooding on the region's motorway network and local roads. On the M62 in Greater Manchester, two lanes were closed westbound between Heywood and junction 18 at Simister Island because of flooding. Speed limits were set to 40mph. Flooded roads were also reported in Marple, near Stockport, and around Heaton Park. A man was taken to hospital after a two-car collision in Lodge Lane, Hyde, at 1.52am. Four others escaped serious injuries in the collision.

Flash Flood in United Kingdom on Monday, 26 November, 2012 at 04:05 (04:05 AM) UTC.

Description
Heavy rain and strong winds battered areas of Britain over the weekend, killing two people and flooding 800 homes, officials said Sunday. A 21-year-old woman died and two others were injured when a large spruce tree collapsed in Exeter, near the southwestern coast, late Saturday. The woman was in a small tent to shelter from the storm when the tree fell on it, police said. She later died at a hospital. The rains caused the most serious problems in southern England. In nearby Cornwall, people had to briefly evacuate their homes as flood waters and torrential rain battered villages. In Cambridgeshire, a man was driving a car when it plunged into a swollen river in a flooded area. The man was pulled from the water, but he died on the way to the hospital. Hundreds of highways and roads were closed due to the flooding, and several train services were canceled. Officials said the situation was stabilizing in southern England, but weather forecasters said persistent rain would continue in the north of England and Scotland on Sunday. Prime Minister David Cameron pledged that all flood victims would get the help they needed.

Flood in United Kingdom on Wednesday, 28 November, 2012 at 04:17 (04:17 AM) UTC.

Description
The impact of heavy rain is still being felt across Tyne and Wear with disruption to roads and rail services. The Environment Agency issued a number of flood warnings including for the River Wear in Chester le Street, in Durham City, and in its estuary. Northumbria Police said roads were closed because of flooding and standing water affected some others. East Coast Main Line rail services are expected to be disrupted until the weekend because of a landslide. Heavy rain continued to fall across parts of the region, but the wet conditions are expected to ease. Network Rail told the BBC it expected repair work on the East Coast Mail Line would continue until the weekend after damage caused by flooding. An embankment slip at Aycliffe, between Durham and Darlington, damaged 2km (1.2 miles) of overhead line. An embankment slip has also damaged overhead lines at Hartlepool and Dawdon on the East Durham coast. East Coast Trains said it would be running a limited service of three trains an hour. One of the areas affected was Newburn in Newcastle, which was also badly hit in September, forcing the demolition of flats whose foundations were washed away.

Newcastle City Council technical director Mick Murphy, said conditions had been "horrendous" over the last few days and had put back work by several days. He said The Winnings area had flooded, but the rock armour - more than 2,000 tonnes of heavy rock which has been put in place over the last few weeks - had worked well and had prevented further problems. Durham County Cricket Club groundsman, David Measer, said: "The water is not coming over the riverbank itself, it is working its way up through any weak point and it's filling the ground up." Whitburn Primary School, in South Tyneside, has been closed. Alan Cadas from the Environment Agency warned people to avoid walking through water. "Walking through flood water can be really dangerous if there are manholes which have just popped up underneath, so you could walk through flood water and find there's a great big hole underneath," he said. Andrew Greener, from Tanfield Lea in County Durham, said he was concerned about the house he had bought recently. "It should be okay but I've moved belongings upstairs to be safe," he said. "I was speaking to friends as we always hear about bad rain and flooding but this just seems to get worse and worse."

Flood in United Kingdom on Wednesday, 28 November, 2012 at 04:14 (04:14 AM) UTC.

Description
Latest reports suggest that about 400 properties have been affected in St Asaph, Denbighshire. Denbighshire council says the situation is "stabilising and the rivers have stopped over-topping". Houses on a new estate at nearby Ruthin were also hit by floods along with homes in Rhuddlan and other villages. The Red Cross says 130 people attended a rest centre in St Asaph Leisure Centre throughout the day and all evacuees have found alternative overnight accommodation. North Wales Fire and Rescue Service have eight fire crews in St Asaph on Tuesday evening with four in Ruthin pumping out homes. Another crew has been sent to Rhuddlan with a volume pump to ensure the road serving Ysbyty Glan Clwyd Hospital, Bodelwyddan, remains open. Welsh-medium Ysgol Glan Clwyd will be closed on Wednesday as parts of the school are being used as an emergency shelter while some roads remain impassable, said the head teacher. And the Bishop of St Asaph, Gregory Cameron, told BBC Radio Wales that an emergency meeting will be held in St Asaph on Wednesday to discuss the clean-up operation. Denbighshire council chief executive Mohammed Mehmet said: "Today has been a difficult day for many people affected by flooding, not only in St Asaph, Ruthin and Rhuddlan, but also in other communities. "Even though we are still in the response stage, work has already started to plan for the recovery phase. Emergency services have been working since the early hours after the river Elwy burst its banks in St Asaph. Severe flood warnings - categorised as a danger to life - are still in place in two stretches of the river, according to the Environment Agency. North Wales Police said the death of the woman - discovered during house-to-house check calls by rescuers - was not thought to be suspicious and an investigation is under way. In some areas of St Asaph, a tiny city with a population of 3,400, water levels reached up to seven feet. On Tuesday evening police said emergency services were continuing to check properties in St Asaph in case any vulnerable people remain in homes in flooded areas.

Floods claim fourth life and leave worst insurance bills for five years

Posted on November 28, 2012




November 28, 2012 – UNITED KINGDOM – Flooding in Britain has claimed a fourth life and brought misery to hundreds more homes, as torrential rain moves away into the North Sea leaving the worst insurance bills for five years in its wake. Firefighters in the devastated centre of St Asaph, the small but historic north Wales community which was given city status by the Queen to mark her Diamond Jubilee, recovered the body of an elderly woman from her flooded house, one of 500 local properties damaged or evacuated. The tragedy follows drownings in the West Country earlier in three days of downpours and floods which have seen the number of damaged houses top the 1100 mark. Emergency teams remain on duty at Malton and Norton in North Yorkshire, where six pumps are keeping the river Derwent at bay, and in York where the river Ouse is expected to peak on the morning of Wednesday 28 November. The historic city is used to flooding in streets beside the river, which bisects the walled core, but a complex defence system involving the smaller river Foss holds all but exceptionally high water at bay. Extra sandbags were deployed by the York Flood Group, an emergency command structure convened when the Ouse rises by over four metres for more than a day. The Environment Agency repeated warnings elsewhere that the break-up of solid downpours into fragmented showers did not mean that the threat of flooding was over. On Tuesday there were 181 flood warnings and 216 flood alerts covering the whole of England, with the highest total (111) in the Midlands and the smallest (6) in the usually damp north west which this time lay just to the north of the path of the wet fronts. Rising levels in the river Severn and the Thames from Oxford downstream have emergency teams on standby. John Curtin, Environment Agency head of incident management said: “Further flooding is expected in the next few days and communities across the country, particularly in north east England, north Wales and Northamptonshire, are urged to remain especially vigilant.” The heaviest insurance bill since 2007 has been estimated by the accountancy firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) which suggests that damage from flooding so far this year is likely to reach £1bn, compared with losses of £3bn in 2007 when successive severe floods across England and Wales forced thousands of people from their homes. Mohammad Khan, insurance partner at PwC, said the period from April to June was the wettest since records began and insurance losses from the flooding were then estimated at £500m. Using summer flood damage as a proxy to the recent flooding across the UK, he estimates the total cost this year to now add up to around £1bn. Since the 2007 floods, the Environment Agency has become more active and more people have signed up to its text message alerts, meaning they are better prepared when the worst weather hits. –Telegraph [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

You got nothing to worry about this time, the Thames is flooding from inland heading out, not from a storm surge heading in. All that rain has got to go somewhere, if they shut the barrier they will flood London. So I'm quite sure that is not on the agenda.

Hmm, if it's flooding from inland, that means down the river from London, coming this way. If the barrier is closed, this will be to STOP london from flooding and create a surge of water down stream straight at us
