I'm here. Thank you for being concerned but it would have to be a storm surge on the scale of a megatsunami in order to reach me as I'm right in the middle of Norfolk. On the other hand, torrential rain does occasionally cause the stream at the end of the garden to burst its banks.Crackle said:

Crap! They were saying on the news that the flood defences are much better prepared than in 1953. Let's hope so. Expected around 7am. Let's hope they've over-egged it as well.alan H said:1,835 died in the Netherlands
wafflycat said:Ah yes, flood defences. ... our local rag is full of stories where flood defence budgets are being cut/withdrawn and defences not maintained with no plans for future maintenance and the like.That sounds hauntingly like Hurricane Katrina. Hope you have a quiet night.
