    Default Britain Battered by Gale force winds and Rain

    Appalling conditions are expected to hit the UK today.

    Thursday 10 January WEATHER WARNING Heavy and persistent rain is expected across much of northern England and southwest Scotland. Severe gales, with 70mph gusts, will also affect western parts of Wales. Road conditions are likely to be dangerous at times. Valid until 1200GMT.




    Thursday 10 January FLOOD WARNING There are 13 flood warnings in force across the United Kingdom. Northeast (8) Northwest (1) Wales (4).

    So basically this thread is to post pictures of the result of the storm.

    I'll start off by posting picture's of flooding in my local village.

    We're suffering from global warming so it rains more. Logical.

    Anyhows, didn't you look a bit weird taking photos of cars going through a flood?

    Oh my! . That looks really bad. Is it just from today or before? As here it's only really been raining today. Hope you keep the RS4 and other cars away from that
    Out of interest were those pictures taken with your iPhone?

    Flat out i hope? With a HUGE wave that might be seen as a Tsunami?

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    Up here I had some severe wind (damn vindaloo!) but it died down after about 12 hours the next day, we had tons of rain also but no flooding, you guys down south seem to get hit a lot though but then again we learnt from the massive flooding we had in the early 90's, are local councils improving flood defences and all that or they do they just do a cleanup and that's it !
    I'm a bit mental.

    there doing a lot of work on drainage over the next few years, but flood defences are poor due to development on all of the old flood plains, but there are plans for a large hydro power station which would control the water flow, whether this will make things better or worse i don't know but i'm sure there will be investigations into it.

    I've had two windows blown out and my car alarms being set off at least 6 times an hour. Bad times!

    That looks well bad, we have had alot of rain today and the wind is starting to get quite bad now so I expect something of the same in the morning as the weather front moves down here.

    Nothing really here, wind was going at it earlier during my Chemsity AS module which was quite annoying but from what i've seen no damage near here, power was a bit dodgy yesterday though. I'm right down south so probably only getting very edge.
