There’s always a record every year when it comes to the weather! You usually wouldn’t notice until you were told!….hottest 2nd Thursday in May for 50 years or most rain on a monday ect ect, it gets a bit silly.
You can’t argue with whats being said in the past couple of weeks though, there have been awful fatalities, lives ruined by flooding and businesses suffering too.
The Environment Agency has more than 35 flood warnings in place across the South West, the Midlands, the East and the North East, calling for immediate action, and over 140 alerts for potential flooding.
The Met Office warned: “The public should be aware that, following recent heavy rainfall, further localised flooding is possible, with parts of Devon, Dorset and Somerset looking especially vulnerable.
Emergency services are on “high alert” for flooding as heavy rain continues to lash the UK after the wettest April since records began in 1910.
Data up to April 29 showed an average of 121.8mm had fallen (4.8in) – almost double the long-term average of 69.6mm (2.7in) and beating the previous record of 120.3mm (4.7in) set in 2000.
