It's not good reports says everyone is safe but more rain is due today it's going to take sometime to get cleaned up.
Even the fire station was not safe yesterday it too needed pumping out. Part of the settle to Carlisle railway not looking too good either.
Be some rethinking this morning for YTY with road championships weeks away. Part of the route inc that bridge are no more.

Our main fire station was moved from the city centre to the outskirts, just next to a river and artificial broad. I put the address into the government's flood risk finder and was informed that:

NORFOLK FIRE SERVICE
FIRE STATION
63
BRACONDALE
NORWICH
NR1 2EE

This location is in or near a flood risk area
Be prepared: things you should do

It's one big mess for sure this is when emergency planning earns it's money and the endless meetings i've sat in prove worth it.
If everyone pulls together it will get better remember to spare a thought for some of the responders in times like this who are volunteers.
Trying to do the best they can with what they have by no means amateurs. But trained members of the community just wanting to put something back.
