Floods in UK.

Has anyone on here been affected by the floods ? Where I live we are quite high up so we have been lucky, I just hope that the rest of the RIBnet members have not been to badly affected by this bad weather.

Everything in my workshop is currently stacked 3ft off the floor. The water is 4 inches from entering the building at the moment, it peaked late this afternoon and has stayed the same for the last few hours. Keeping a close watch on the EA website and webcams from home.

This is my friends d-class on the river avon in Stratford after assisting in securing some boats. River levels 1.8m above normal.

Not much room left under them bridges , but I bet it's good fun on the sib. Thanks for posting the pic

I hope the water level recedes and your property isn't affected mate.

It's pretty wet around here - Hants/Wilts border. Very nice gastro pub down the road is flooded. Ironically opposite Mr Ramseys place. Few roads flooded (glad I've got a Landy - took great joy in driving through the "road closed" signs.)
