After The Deluge

After The Deluge

Torrential rain over the last few days has led to severe flooding in many parts of the west, south and midlands.
Homes, farms, shops, schools and even a hospital have been flooded as swollen rivers burst their banks in villages
and cities from Galway to Waterford.
While hundreds of people have had their homes flooded, there has fortunately been no loss of life, unlike in England where a policeman was swept away in floodwaters in Cumbria.
Although we have had flooding here on previous occasions due to high tides, this time the flooding has been
limited to ponds of water in fields, with seagulls joining the flocks of sheep in the meadows.

Hope you stay safe.

It makes Ireland green, but this was clearly too much of a good thing. Your image of the blue sky and drying sunlight shows hope things will be back to normal soon.

We had a ton of rain here on the US East Coast last week. Hopefully you all will dry out soon. Great shot!

A good record of some awfully wet and indeed tragic weather for some people currently.

Nice shot of the results of this devastating weather system.

Mairead - I think you are experiencing the "nor'easter" that hit the east coast of the US last week. It was an ugly storm, but hopefully all will return to normal in Ireland soon!
A lovely photo! :-)

It certainly gives the country a different look.
