Flattr this

The heavy rain has now died in Britain however a load of areas are now flooded in Britains Great Flood. There are currently 8 severe flood warnings around the country, over 100,000 homes and businesses are damaged and the cost of the damage is currently planned to be more than 2 billion pounds. Tewkesbury has no running water and out of power, except street lights.

Warnings are currently along the River Severn, River Avon and River Thames are being monitored too as within 2 hours time in Oxford the River Thames banks will burst.

Many people are blaming this on global warming, however the cause of this disaster is the fact that the jet stream is more southern than what it usually is, which I suppose happens every couple of times each century.
