Gloucestershire Floods: The Severn has Peaked

I talked to Kieron yesterday evening and he was fine. He had been working from home instead of going into the office but he had both power and water.

During the night the Severn has peaked and more rain is not expected. The National Grid substation at Walham has stayed online. While emergency services say that they're not in the recovery phase yet, things are under control and the prognosis is good.

For those without water, the situation is the same as before. It will take 7-14 days to get the Mythe water works operative again once flood waters have retreated. Most of Cheltenham has water but there are fears that they will lose it, so bowsers have been placed around town.

This story about people coming together to make a wedding happen despite the floods, was heart-warming.
