We dont normally here things like ;
More than 2,000 people are taken to emergency shelters and hundreds more are stranded
The fire and rescue service said it was working at "full stretch" and only answering "risk-to-life calls
EMERGENCY EVACUATION CENTRES
But these are all over the news again today, as they have been kind of most of the summer due to the weather we are getting. Bad storms are moving up the UK today, but have serverely disrupted life again. This time Gloucester, where i grew up and my father lives, has been hit badly
Look at these pics
(Im meant to be at that train station on Friday!!)
It never really hits home, the effect of this when its not happening to you. I got told by my dad his car nearly came off the road 3 times becasue the current was so strong. Took him 4 hours to go 7 miles in BAD rain. Luckly his house is on kind of a hill, with a steep drive, but houses either side, and on the other side of the road are flooded.
Any glouscester people in here, hope you all ok, as to anyone affected this summer.
Im so sure this time last year we were complaining it was too hot!!!
