Flood-ravaged Britain now threatened by ice and heavy snow: Report

Arctic blast and heavy snow plunging Britain into frigid conditions following destruction by mega storms.

The Environment Agency issued a dozen severe flood warnings indicating  indicate “danger to life” as rivers reach dangerous levels.

It also posted  hundreds of flood warnings and flood alerts following  a gigantic storm surge spawned by strong winds and high tides which destroyed coastal towns.

Devon, Cornwall, parts of  Wales and southeast England were the worst hit areas, according to reports.

“Hundreds of homes were flooded and officials closed the Thames Barrier to protect properties in London,” said a report.

“This weekend and into the beginning of next week there is more wind and rain on the way with 80mph gusts in parts and up to three inches of rain likely in 72 hours. Torrential downpours are going to be devastating in parts of the UK which have been given absolutely no let-up from the stormy weather,” the report quoted a meteorologist as saying.

Prime Minister David Cameron yesterday called another emergency COBRA meeting to review the crisis.

[COBRA: Cabinet Office Briefing Room A – the location for a crisis response committee by the government of the United Kingdom in response to instances of national or regional crisis.]

He said: “A range of ministers from across government will be working very closely with local councils, power companies, utility and transport companies, making sure all those organizations are prepared for the bad weather.”

Fierce storms have lashed the UK since before Christmas with the ­latest onslaught on Thursday night and yesterday.

Homes have once again been left without electricity after high winds tore down power lines while transport networks have been crippled.

Winter 2013 – 2014 is forecast to be “exceptionally severe,” with above-average snowfall and frigid temperatures, meteorologists say.

High tides and strong winds have also caused flooding in Wales and western England as officials warn of a continuing threat in the UK coastal areas.

The UK Environment Agency has issued four severe flood warnings, meaning “danger to life” for Gloucestershire and Dorset.

Earlier on Friday, residents in parts of Dorset and Aberystwyth were evacuated from their homes before the high tide on Friday night, said the report.

    • “It’s the worst flooding in 70 years, I was a boy in Malmesbury and I’ve never seen water like it. The houses won’t dry out for weeks and months. There were cars with water up to their bonnets.” He said.
