Posted:@ gabe:

South and east yorskhire are all low lying ex-pre glacial lakebed, as low-lying as east anglia and Norfolk.

Historically farms were few and far between on higher land and people used to move from between the two on coricles in times of flood.

Its all one big floodplain

West Yorkshire and north Yorkshire are hilly.

In south and east are the victims of 200 years industrial impact on the area and poor governmental planning and lack of sustainable catchment management plans (as opposed to building flood barriers).

that said, things like the flood in the UK will only happen more and more (it happens every other year anyways).



gabe, you need water in brisbane/all of australia otherwise you'll be having to dig holes, line them with plastic and water through condensation. alternatively you could get yerself a stillsuit ala "dune"

Posted:Glade was abondoned after several cars began to float around the car park apparently.



I have just got home (8.20am UK time) having been stranded about 5 miles from where I work (about 30 from home). I managed to make it to a pub in a village and was then fortunate to be put up in a village hall with blankets, toilets and coffee. Thankfully I am now home- I hope other hoppers are OK - its not nice out there.

Rain got in the way of a lot of my plans. rain and waist deep water in our garden and drive, and 6 inches in our house! moved the entire of the downstairs furnature upstairs within an hour (not easy in a house this big!)

but on the upside, we were planning on decorating anyway! :-D
And it was amusing, right up to the point it came in the front door!

This is the most severe fllods in modern british history, hundred of thousands of people are in trouble without clean water or electricity

And the Europeen Union is not in hurry to give them a Euro aid...

For the environment is a tragedy 'caus the aid will go to the people and not to the forest and the river...

Posted:you're so right - that's why it's important it stays in the news or it drops off the political, and consequently financial, agenda. Thousands of people in Hull still not back in their homes after a fortnight and more being added everyday this week in the south & midlands.

The insurance companies (for whom i reserve a healthy distrust & dislike normally) are bound to be (Oh god was going to say 'swamped' umm Feck ,'inundated' isn't much better!) incredibly busy handling claims and it must be obvious to everyone they can't be expected to cope with such widespread and unusual circumstances.

The government should be setting up an agency to provide funds quickly to enable people to re-build their homes and their lives and claim that back from the Insuarnce companies when they get thru the paperwork.

Anyone without insurance still needs help or we're condemning people to poverty from which they're unlikely to recover.

We're only as strong as our weakest member - and as rich

Posted:even with insurance unless they have specific flood cover many policies will not cover them, my parents know from passed experience as natural floods are covered by "acts of god"

(without going into a religious debate it amazes me a "person" of dubious existance can be quoted in older legal documents, although I think many new ones use natural disatsters now)

Posted:Yeah, the thing about the "act of God" is annoying. Though why the UK, as one of the richer countries in the world and Europe, and which encourages FURTHER building on floodplains (in spite of this, and instead of working on the riverbeds etc) should want money from the EU, kind of escapes me. I assume it's got something to do with people like Cameron claiming that the UK has the "worst social problems in Europe". I expect he'd love to live in Albania instead or be a Curd in Turkey...

Honestly though, if a country where the European constitution is not wanted, which hasn't actively encouraged any major projects of European integration in the last 20 years (Schengen and Euro anyone, for example?), that keeps blocking most new policies that come along, should suddenly demand public money, that would be quite funny. Maybe someone should say "we'll pay for all the damage if you stop blocking everything in the European Parliament"? ubblol
