22nd June - Today's News: Flood Causes $80m Damage in Minnesota



Chris back to tropical storm after hours as seasons 1st Atlantic hurricane far off Canada - it's now heading towards Britain.   And a new storm may be brewing in Gulf of Mexico.  The question is: will Debby do Dallas?  ( Sorry ..... )

Floods cause rock festival chaos on the Isle of Wight - I shall be watching the concerts - especially Springsteen on Sunday -  from the comfort of my leather recliner at home!   And there's a floods warning in North West England as heavy rain due overnight whilst more flood alerts return for counties hit  by major flooding in Wales.
