Copeland hit by more floods

Please take great care if you are out on the roads in Copeland this evening

There are at least six flood warnings in Cumbria this evening, several of them in the Copeland constituency.

Traffic is being affected by water on the roads in many areas including Keswick, Distington, Frizington, and Muncaster/Holmrook. There is also a flood warning in Egremont and there have been reports of the River Duddon bursting its banks.

The River Duddon did flood yesterday. Several people were stranded at Duddon Bridge because the road flooded. I was informed that at least 200 cars were stranded at Duddon Bridge. High tide was due to peak at 10.00 pm. The Millom contingent of Ulverston Choral Society decided it was unsafe to travel to the rehearsal in Ulverston as a consequence. I believe flooding was bad north of Millom last night. I expect the town was pretty much cut off.

This is bringing back bad memories of last November. God forbid.
