The flooding in Ironbridge and Jackfield  by beryl

The flooding in Ironbridge and Jackfield

Sorry not my own photos , but I needed to record this horrible situation !
Storms Ciara and Dennis have caused no end of destructions including flooding in many parts of the UK . Locally there is much flooding in the town of Shrewsbury and also along the River Severn around Ironbridge and Jackfield . The temporary flood barriers have been put up along the warfage in Ironbridge but there is talk of evacuation as the barriers may not be sufficient and the force of the river is cracking the road . This poor pub in Jackfield , is well and truly soaking in the Severn ! -
It is trrible - and many are such picturesque villages too! Many people no longer have insurance either as if has happened to them before- such a sad situation. I can't think of anything worse happening to our home!

Wow... that's intense flooding! I feel badly for the people!

Heartfelt sympathy for all of the affected people! There's a similar situation in Mississippi and Alabama currently.
And we have greedy morons running things that are trying to deny man made climate
change!

Oh my gosh, that is awful and devastating.

Truly dreadful. I live at the top of a hill so have not been flooded out like so many have. My heart goes out to all of those that have been affected by the storms.

Dreadful to see this, deeply sorry for all affected

Dreadful scene - flooding affecting so much of the UK. Really feel for all the people whose lives, homes and businesses are affected.

Such devastating images. I've seen Ironbridge on the TV and in the paper. I saw that the Boat Inn at Jackfield is flooded to its roof. Rosie and I ate there when we stayed in Ironbridge

Such devastation, we were lucky to be on the edge of all this, although all our fields have ponds of standing water with nowhere to go.

A complete nightmare Beryl....the mess & dirt that’s left behind too is heart breaking. These photos are really quite frightening, it must be really scary sitting in the dark & water coming up.....insurance is a problem too plus could you ever sell your house again. Such weather variations in the world!

So scary ...

Oh my, these photos say it all. To just have one storm would have been bad enough, but two powerful storms within days of each other is a disaster. I’m so sorry for everyone suffering in your country.

Such flooding & damage.....so like here & the clean up after is heartbreaking.

So sorry for the victems that get invold. We had also those problems with the rivers and had to made protections.

A great portrayal of this terrible situation. I think we have got away relatively lightly compared to this!
February 19th, 2020  
Heard about these floods way over on the other side of the world! How tragic - that pub will never be the same!
February 19th, 2020  
Oh my goodness makes my heart ache
February 20th, 2020  
Oh my gosh...that is so terrible
February 20th, 2020  
So sorry to see this. It looked terrible on the news as well. Hope you are safe and dry.
February 20th, 2020  
This is a very bad flood. Hope its all gone now. Then of course is the cleaning up!
February 20th, 2020  
Images like this and all the devastation caused by the storms makes me thankful Nottingham has good flood protection, but my heart goes out to those who have been affected and lost so much
February 20th, 2020  
OMG hope you are safe and dry. Pity to see these. I wanted to visit Iron Bridge when my son was in the UK but never came to going there. And now I have to see it in this condition.
February 20th, 2020  
Heart breaking for all the flood victims my thoughts are with them as they try and clean up the devastation to there homes.
February 20th, 2020
