Watch out folks – we’ve had some remarkably heavy storms this afternoon (Sunday, 27th May 2018), and many local roads are flooded with reports of swamped roads and houses across our area.
It takes as little as a foot of water to wash away a car, so take care and don’t travel unless you have to. This is the lights at usual this evening, as posted on Facebook by Georgia Bird:
Beware particularly in rural areas like Mill Lane, Stonnall and near the Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas.
Beware driving through floodwater – it can conceal all manner of unseen horrors, and if part of a river flow can easily sweep cars away. If your car has a low air intake, getting water into the engine will kill it.
Take care folks. Welcome to the British summer…
