Last week we were monitoring the potential for ex-hurricane Nadine to spawn a secondary area of Low Pressure, this Low Pressure system did indeed develop and push up into the United Kingdom and brought widespread heavy rainfall which lead to some very high rainfall totals and some fairly widespread flooding too. I’ve been reading various different news articles in the last hour or so and I’ve decided to post some of the flood pictures here to see just how devastating this storm system has been for some areas.

If you have any pictures of the severe weather in your area in the last couple of days, please feel free to leave them on the Facebook page and they’ll be added to this post.
