Water

Posted by davidburbage on July 20, 2007

Maidenhead has been flooded today. The roads being full of water and the sheer weight of water that fell on us from 6am until about now (the sun is shining as I type this) at 1.35pm has caused traffic chaos and closed a number of schools; a number of homes have been flooded and news is still coming in.

I have taken some photos but you can see plenty on the national BBC site (of Maidenhead).

Council officers saw it coming and ensured they were ready with sandbags etc although they also got held up in the traffic problems in this morning’s rush hour.
