September 2012 Floods – In Pictures

September 25, 2012

Other News


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.
