29th December - Today's News: At Least 47 Dead in US Christmas Storms
The wine bar with water half way up its windows! The stark images of flood-hit Britons battling to save their property… as 'nightmare' flooding hits York after rivers overflow - all thanks to record breaking December rainfall - and there is more on the way as Storm Frank threatens more misery.
What exactly the government are meant to do to stop such rain has yet to be explained by those demanding action .... Meanwhile, so far as I am aware, not one single person in Britain is literally homeless (living in a makeshift shelter on the streets), a scene all too common however when floods occur elsewhere in the world.
Also, no-one has died in Britain. In the US there are 47 now dead - including a 7-year-old boy and a mother who was on Facetime with her husband when he watched her get swept away by a tornado meaning that this month is now the deadliest December for tornadoes in over 60 years whilst historic and unseasonable flooding overwhelms Central U.S., Mississippi River
