1st August - Today's News: Dramatic Rescue in Maryland Flash Flood
Maryland floods: men form human chain to save woman stuck in car as two killed in devastating Maryland floods
In Canada, 2 tornadoes confirmed in Saskatchewan Sunday
Whilst here, a huge waterspout pictured swirling above stormy skies over Suffolk - and as can be seen along with other pictures of funnel clouds and waterspouts spotted in Suffolk, it did touch down over the sea to become a waterspout. And there was also a 'would be tornado' spotted near Folkestone at the weekend too.
And whilst it's true that more rain will fall in the next 24 hours than in the whole of July that's only because it will fall in parts that had an exceptionally dry month. There are no fears of a "wash-out" August. Whatever that might mean ... But nor is a record heatwave expected (though a warm spell mid month is possible).
