- What’s ya flooding like locally?
… and it is raining again in Worksop.
Seen one idiot thinking his car is a submarine this morning and trying to go under Kilton Hill Bridge. Of course he get stuck…
Center of Rotherham, next to post office had about 80-100cm of water this morning, but apart of that more-less ok. Not sure how it is like further afield or closer to canal/Don.
Heard some people get stuck overnight in Medowhell…

Raining at present here in Darley Dale, but the river Derwent isn’t expected to peak till later. There has been some discussion of water being released from Ladybower and Derwent last night due to the pressure up there. Was sad to realise that the coastguard helicopter that was searching up the valley before lunch was looking to recover the glass that got swept away at Rowsley in the early hours.Posted 2 months agosadexpunkSubscriber
pretty bad in lincs, plenty of roads closed and idiots still trying to get through and need rescuing….
out of interest, is there an up-to-date site for road closures anywhere? one of my lads and his mate and girlfriends are flying from birmingham airport in the morning, so A46/A453/A42/M42 to airport parking. any sites for them to look at for closures/re-routing etc?

@sharkatack – I hope there’s a cycle lane under all that water #cyclingonthepavement!
There is, and luckily it’s about 18 inches higher than the road otherwise he’d be swimming.
It’s weird in Sheffield tonight. I just got home from work in 9 minutes! Wish everyone would stay home more often.Posted 2 months agodocrobsterMember
Watch out cycling (and walking) through dirty water you can see the bottom through, because it’s not unheard of for the rising waters to lift manholes covers………
Yeah that happened on the a57 snake pass yesterday evening. Several cars got flats on raised drain coversPosted 2 months ago

South Downs near me, courtesy if you believe the local news, of the EA cutting back and not dredging the river mouth
The temerity of them. How dare they not spend public money on protecting an artificially created floodplain with no-one on it from flooding.

I will say, having just got back from the P&H in Litlington that the flooded roads seem to have pretty much halved their usual Friday evening business and Alfriston is pretty dead apart from lots of 4×4 response and EA vehicles so there is some indirect effect on people here. That and all the low lying homes in Alfriston.Posted 2 months agomidlifecrashesSubscriber
Well I’ve spent the day removing flooring and skirtings, mopping out and getting the dehumidifiers going in one house. Same again tomorrow in the other, if it’s moat has drained. We still don’t have flowing drains and likely won’t until the Don drops a few feet. We had a laugh when my tenant compared it to the Titanic on Look North last night though.Posted 2 months agokayak23Subscriber
Went off in my canoe this morning across the mighty river Leam, in Leamington spa where folks normally walk their dogs. Pretty rad.

Flooding on the river Leam over Newbold Comyn this morning. November 11th. I was able to canoe where dogs are normally walked. Hopefully it'll subside soon and leave the sheds dry! #flood #flooding #leamingtonspa #riverleam #river #newboldcomyn #rls #royalleamingtonspa #warwickshire #november #water #canoe #canoeing #shed #shedsofinstagram #sheds #shedding #woodworking #woodworkersofinstagram #woodwork #wood #floating #leamingtoncourier #loveleam
