More flooding

I am sorry to hear that there has been more disruption caused by the heavy and prolonged rains. I have yet to receive definitive explanations as to the cause but it does look as though most of the problems have been caused by the drains and culverts being overwhelmed by the volume of water. Whether this has partly been caused by them being blocked by autumn leaves and debris or there are other reasons I have yet to hear. Either way it is little comfort for those who have been affected. What I do know is that central government and local government have been working on improving flood resilience all year. That does not mean of course there never will be any more flooding. I think what it does reinforce is the need to ensure that careful assessment is made of the impact on the existing drains before new housing is allowed to be constructed.
