Has anyone's property suffered from the floods?

We had to plodge down the drive to get to front door (water nearly to my calves), fortunately our front door has quite a high step up to get in house so no damage to property only a bit of water got in the garage.Further up the street a few neighbours had pumps going and buckets bailing water out, a couple of them had sandbags ready but water still got in.

Can only imagine the devastation to properties faced by some of the inhabitants of Morpeth and those poor people who were evacuated.

From Humford to the Dam a lot of the path has gone, water level has never been as high.

Weather been good today but i can hear the rain starting again now, hopefully it won't last all night and be as bad as yesterday, not sure of the forecast for tonight and tomorrow.

After reading of the devastation in and around Rothbury and Morpeth in the on-line Sunday Sun we saw some of Morpeth on our news, and it doesn't appear to be over yet, I see more of it on way about Tuesday, I hope you are all safe and dry, our thoughts are with you.

BTW we had our first snow last weekend!

It all looks so nasty on the news. I've never known Morpeth to flood before. Pretty much every river in the north east rose considerably over the weekend, just looks like Morpeth got the short end of the stick. Cheer up though, there's a tail end of a hurricane heading over towards us from the states. That's nice of them.

And this is a bit of a rubbish picture of the flooded Spine Road... but I drove round the roundabout 6 times to get it :o

Its a wonder that you were not dizzy by the time you took the picture

:D

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
