"Unprecedented weather event" Say Weather Forecasters
FLOOD-battered Britain is on alert for further chaos and loss of life this weekend as fears grow that more heavy downpours are on the way.
Forecasters say an “organised band of persistent showers” is set to sweep the country on Friday and Saturday, bringing several more inches of rain to many already-­saturated regions.The worst of the deluge, expected on Saturday morning, could cause flooding on a national scale, with heavy rainfall likely to hit “almost anywhere”. Experts warned that many waterlogged areas were seriously at risk, as the water now has nowhere to go.There are already 245 areas across the country considered to be at risk of flooding after weeks of rain culminated in Monday’s unseasonal downpour.
