Flood

I see that Waverley Street was flooded this morning. I thought this problem had been sorted out years ago by Mary Donhau?

I thought so too Christopher. I hope no houses have been flooded?

Two photo's courtesy of christopher showing the flooding in Waverley Street and Diglis Lane yesterday.
Waverley street

Diglis Lane


The flooded area soon went down so perhaps the pumping station worked, better not say any more just in case! More rain expected...

I like your plastic boat christopher, is it now safely back in your bath room?  ;)

Please note,that the flooding in Waverley St and Diglis Lane is raw sewage.Really unpleasant and a health hazard.
Might be wise not to let your dog drink it(as I saw yesterday).
Please drive through it slowly as a bow wave is created and as Motiok says,it goes into gardens and drives,and into pedestrians wellies!

As you will see in the previous post by Wildlife Ranger,there is a number to ring if you have flood related problems and need help with evacuation.

Warwick Neale of the City council contacted Diglis.com this morning to emphasise that there is help available.He asks that the Friends of Diglis Fields and members of Diglis.com keep an eye on the flood situation.
Please keep a weather eye(no pun intended) on neighbours and properties etc.There is help out there should you need it.

A lot of drivers are turning round now rather than going through.

Road is now closed at the mini island. It's rather eerie not having any cars or pedestrians go by. I hope this means the houses are now safe from water being forced in by inconsiderate drivers and that not too much damage has been done.

In response to the major issues being caused by the ongoing severe weather conditions across the country, West Mercia Police have today launched a dedicated internet page on their website to give all the latest updates and advice to residents across their own force area.

The page can be accessed from the home page on the official West Mercia Police website and as well as offering useful advice on how to keep safe during the extreme conditions, it will also have links to various external websites where people can find out all the latest travel information and weather forecasts, and also any updates on school closures across the counties of Herefordshire, Shropshire and Worcestershire.

The dedicated internet page can be found at the following link - http://www.westmercia.police.uk/flooding.html - but local people are reassured the force will continue to release information via the official Twitter account, @wmerciapolice, and also on the West Mercia Police Facebook page at www.facebook.com/westmerciapolice.

Issued:  Thursday 13 February, 2014

Waverley Street closed but Chelsea Tractors are ignoring the sign and have to have to reverse into somebody's drive way to turn round. What is the matter with these people?

Good point Hazel.The water in both Waverley St and Diglis Lane is raw sewage;I wouldn't want it on my wheels and I certainly don't want it sloshed up the drive either.

Whilst I'm posting about poo;I realise that it is very difficult if you have a dog to exercise,as the fields you would normally use are under water.Several people are walking along Cavendish St with their dogs,and some are not picking up poo.

Love dogs
Hate poo
Please take it home with yoo.........ta ;)

A warning regarding future development in the city. Mary Dhonau and local residents put in a lot of, highly successful, effort to the previous problems. Before that I remember her showing me the water coming up fast in her cellar and water was spouting from the drains along Waverley and Diglis Lane. It would be a tragedy for all that effort to be undermined.

A very good and valid point Francis. I see developers are still trying to get hold of Battenhall Farm, land in St. John's and according to last night's Journal a further 59 houses on floodplain in Northwick!

What is wrong with these people??
