Storm Surge Allert to UK!!! One death and 11 rescued!!!
Storm Surge in United Kingdom on Saturday, 15 December, 2012 at 20:55 (08:55 PM) UTC.

Description
A crewman has died and 11 others had to be rescued when stormy seas overcame their vessel in the North Sea. The Vos Sailor was damaged and took on water during severe weather overnight. Coastguard launched a rescue mission after a mayday call at 4.30am and 11 crew members were winched to safety. Police said one man was fatally injured however. His body has not yet been recovered. Meanwhile, a major rescue operation took place in Sunderland this afternoon after 15 fishermen were knocked off their feet by waves which crashed over Roker Pier. The men were fishing on the pier and a man in his 60s was left with a broken leg following the incident at 1.30pm. He was winched off the pier by helicopter and taken to hospital in Newcastle. Rescue teams were forced to evacuate the other men through a tunnel underneath the pier.

The stricken vessel in the North Sea, which was deployed on the Balmoral Oil field, sustained significant damage. At present emergency services cannot board the boat, and are trying to return it to shore. 'It appears at this time that one crew member has suffered fatal injuries,' a Grampian Police spokesman said. 'Next of kin have been informed of this situation although no details can be confirmed at this time. 'Efforts are ongoing to recover the vessel which will be brought in to Aberdeen harbour in due course. 'As is normal in such circumstances a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.' Aberdeen Coastguard was contacted just before 4.30am by a nearby installation who heard the faint mayday, as stormy weather wreaked havoc across the country. The vessel in difficulty sustained significant damage and became disabled while on standby vessel duties 120 miles Northeast of Aberdeen. Six other vessels, and three helicopters were sent to the scene. This includes the Coastguard Search and Rescue helicopter from Sumburgh, an RAF helicopter from RAF Lossiemouth and Bond 1 – the BP Jigsaw helicopter.

At the time, winds in the area were reported to be south-easterly 60-75 knots with 6.5 metre seas. Non-essential crew on the nearby North Sea Producer, a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit, were evacuated to other rigs as a precaution because the disabled boat was drifting. The incident in Sunderland took place at about 1.30pm this afternoon. A total of 15 fisherman were hit by two huge waves, which knocked them off their feet. Bev Allen, watch manager for Humber Coastguard, said: 'We had a number of people on the pier at Roker who were knocked off their feet. One sustained a broken leg and they all had to be evacuated off. 'They were anglers hit by two successive waves which knocked them all over. If anybody had of gone into the water it would have been very dangerous.' The man with the broken leg was winched off the pier by a rescue helicopter while the remaining fisherman were evacuated through a tunnel under the pier. It has now been closed to the public. More than 120 areas across the UK are on flood alert this morning with heavy rain set to lash the country over the weekend.

Flash Flood in United Kingdom on Saturday, 15 December, 2012 at 13:40 (01:40 PM) UTC.

Description
More than 120 areas across the UK are on flood alert with heavy rain set to fall over the weekend. The Environment Agency increased the number of areas at risk overnight as rain continued for a second day. While the worst affected places are in the South West, 128 areas across the South East, Midlands, central and northern England, Wales and southern and central Scotland are also on alert. A further 15 areas across the west, as well as in Northampton and Warrington, are expected to flood, the agency said. Around 30 commercial properties were flooded yesterday in the coastal town of Looe, south Cornwall, as a band of heavy rain swept in from the Atlantic. Tom Tombler, meteorologist for MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said: "The heavy rain will affect mostly the western parts of the the UK and southern England as well as Wales. "The risk of localised flooding remains throughout the day, especially in areas which saw heavy rain yesterday. "Between 10mm and 20mm is expected in the worst-hit areas. "Temperatures will remain milder though, around 10C for most areas." The heavy rain is expected to stay for the weekend, before a brighter start to the week, he added, although the rain will return on Thursday.
