This morning 28th March 2016 Anthony Sargeant took this photograph from the bedroom window of his Shropshire (UK) home. It is still windy but no longer raining – the flooding is the consequence of Storm Katie which resulted in torrential rain during the night. As the water made its way down from the Clee Hills of Shropshire in the early morning so the River Corve began to swell and burst its banks flooding the meadows below the house. It is fortunate that the house stands on a rocky outcrop and is not affected by these periodic floods across the water meadows. Below is how the fields normally look in Winter.
