Last weekend we reported that parts of Belgium and The Netherlands were flooded due to torrential rains. In the meantime, the situation in those countries is slowly returning to normal. But it seems the rain showers are not over yet.

After heavy rainfall its now Southwest England that is battling floods. Police and military are working together to get people into safety, evacuating them by helicopter from their cars or houses.

The towns of St Austell and St Blazey are the worst off. A Mudslide near Lostwithiel made train transport to Cornwall impossible while the town of Mevagissey, completely surrounded by water, is being evacuated.
