Flooding in Thaxted
What was classed as a mini storm recently blasted through Thaxted causing over half of the town centre to become flooded. Some shops, houses and other buildings experienced major damage and some were damaged beyond repair.
It’s not uncommon for us to experience freak weather here in the UK; sometimes we can experience all the seasons in one day. Flooding in particular can be dangerous and these bad weather conditions can cause many objects and sometimes even people to be swept away. In certain circumstances flooding can be the cause of severe injury and sometimes even death.
While we can’t prevent bad weather and flooding, we can take certain precautions to try and ensure our safety is at the forefront at all times. However, again, this isn’t always possible. Sometimes we are injured through the negligence of another person in a bad weather situation. For example, if there is severe weather, mass panic can ensue which means that people rush around causing mayhem. In particular, drivers are a big danger to others when bad weather comes along as the worry and panic means that road users become more erratic. On a slippy or partially flooded road, this can be a very serious problem.
