Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Britain Battered by Barrage of Storms

Posted by feww on February 9, 2014


Large swathes of SW UK submerged by yet more floodwater

Hundreds of Flood Warnings and Flood Alerts remain in effect across Britain, as the authorities issue 6 Severe Flood Warnings [“danger to life] for the southeast and the southwest portions of the flood-ravaged country.

Battered by a barrage of storms since late last year, including a major storm this weekend, Britain is bracing for yet another area of low pressure in the Atlantic reaching the country early Tuesday and  bringing more torrential rains.

High winds and torrential downpours affected much of the UK, especially southern England and western Wales, on Saturday and into early Sunday, with gusts of up to 138 km/hr reported on the coasts of Cornwall, the Bristol Channel and west Wales, said reports.

  • River Thames has burst its banks at Chertsey, Surrey with floodwaters threatening scores of homes.
  • Many roads have been closed due to flooding and fallen trees in Wales.
  • Millions of tons of water are being pumped out each day from the Somerset Levels and Moors, a large area of coastal plain and wetland in central Somerset, SW England, which has been submerged under several feet of water for many weeks.
  • Residents in several Somerset villages have been advised to leave their homes.

Rail Links to Southern UK Have Been Cut Off

  • The main railway between the two major counties of Devon and Cornwall was destroyed by high tides and giant waves earlier this week. A large section of sea wall collapsed at Dawlish in Devon and a long stretch of railway track was washed into the sea.
  • There are reports of damage also to the Somerset – Exeter rail link due to landslides.


In November 2009,  EDRO/FIRE-EARTH Models showed climate change could directly affect about half the UK population within 3 to 5  years. Our Forecast and most of the links posted below have since been filtered, censored, blocked or buried by Google, WordPress and others.
