Days of heavy rain have led to flooding in southwestern England and parts of Wales and at least one fatality, British authorities said Sunday.
The UK Environment Agency posted a severe flood alert for the town of Helston, in the southwestern county of Cornwall, where the River Cober was rising over its banks, and warned towns across England and Wales to prepare for more high water.
In Exeter, in neighboring Devon, a woman was killed when a tree fell on her Saturday night, the Devon and Cornwall Police Service reported.
On Twitter, Prime Minister David Cameron called the scenes of flooding "shocking" and said his government would make sure "everything is being done to help."
The region has seen four days of non-stop rainfall that has capped months of heavy precipitation, including the wettest April-June period on record. More than 225 areas stretching from Cornwall through the Midlands region to the northeastern coast were under flood warnings Sunday afternoon as the latest system moved through, the Environment Agency said.
If they could only send some of that rain to Tx, we'd get rid of our drought, which has been going on for a few years now! Peace to the families who lost loved 1s! In other news, Larry Hagman, the villainy J.R. Ewing, Jeannie's beloved "Master," died! Peace to his family as well!! This is what I want to say so stop blocking me, til I say what CNN wants me to say, cuz that ain't gon' happen!!
I give up, CNN! Can't figure out your criteria for posting here anymore! Since I can't speak my mind, I just wont speak at all on this blog!!
While our Marxist government is working overtime to take our Second Amendment rights away, CNN IS mustering effort to single people out, to take thier freedom of speech away. "And don't think for a minute thier not".
Their criteria in This Just In is to let a person hijack other names, post rot under them; and when the person who is the victim complains, start to prevent the victim from posting, while letting the t roll posts stand.
Wondering if this will even go through.
Nope, didn't think they'd let me post. I'm not a name-stealer.
shorking in deed, hope things will get better soon.
Sure do miss NSaidi, was so much better when she was here.
lol...you mean nsaidiot....gone???
Im not implying anything KENNY, im saying outright, somebody is hijacking our names, all of the regulars, & youve said a few times also that your name was hijacked correct? & that someone has a seperate set of rules cuz those posts stay up & ours deleted!

So, Englands getting rain, and our east coast is gearing up for another storm. Its the weather, nothin new.
