Heavy wind and rain battering the county

Hereford Times: Flood water in Crossways, Peterchurch. Flood water in Crossways, Peterchurch.

HEAVY wind and rain is battering the county.

Herefordshire Council have had to bring in additional crews to help move fallen trees from roads around Herefordshire while other routes are currently closed due to flooding.

Roads shut off include Bakers Lane at Winforton and Breinton Road in Lower Breinton, which was closed after power cables came down.

The River Wye and the River Arrow are on flood alert and trains between Newport and Hereford are currently suspended because of flooding.

There are reports that the Tesco store in Bewell Street, Hereford, has experienced a leak.

Careful driving is needed around Madley and at roads leading in to Vowchurch and the Crossways at Peterchurch is flooded.

If you see a fallen tree blocking or partially blocking a road call the council on 01432 260500 with details.

Dave Throup from the Environment Agency has reported that Hereford has just had almost half an inch of rain in the last hour.

Blimey. We may all be stuffed.
This looks like a flood of biblical proportions.

Oh for a man with an Ark !

An Ark would have proved very useful earlier when I was wading around my flooded cellar in my trusty wellies!!

I cursed the day you donated that Ark to the play area!!

Blimmin flippin bloody hell.
The river was so high it was up to the bloody boathouse in town. I am commencing on the construction of a super ark. I shall be inviting anyone from Herefordshire to join me on this huge structure and once she sets sail I shall be heading for the cradle of humanity - the mighty continent of Africa.
On arrival we shall set up a plantation to grow marijuana. This will become the foundation of a new settlement. We shall consume the marijuana and become enlightened and elect Davis Icke as President for Life.
