    "- But drought could 'last till Christmas' as land is too dry to soak up the rain"

    What the fuck? How is land too dry to soak up water
    18 months of pretty much no rain. The ground is so dry that it just either runs away (causing floods) or just gets soaked up (can't be used for water). It has rained for pretty much a week non-stop here but it stopped for a few hours this afternoon and it tried out so quickly I was amazed.

    The river tees was dead high up earlier.
    If it hasn't gone back down then the high street might end up with another flood.

    Wow looks like the river Calder in Wakefield's about to burst its banks and the canal in Leeds is pretty much at its limit.

    First time I've ever heard of tornadoes outside of the US. Cool, well, bad for them, but neat to hear he american mid-west isn't the only place they form.

    Holy fuck. Seriously at the start of the week seeing the weather report for this week I said theres going to be a tornado just by looking at how the wind and rain was moving in a anti-clockwise direction towards Britain... did I jinx this country? Or just got lucky on calling it out.

    It wasn't just the south, Sheffield had plenty of flash floods yesterday and this morning a few roads around the rivers were closed because of overnight flooding, no wind though
