3 super cell thunderstorms hit Newcastle yesterday and dumped a month's worth of rain in 15 minutes!!
Fantastic picture of the Tyne Bridge.
City now known as Newcastle Under Tyne!!

Back in the UK and yep, it's very wet. Trains &metros cancelled. Trains still cancelled in the borders due to a landslide. Town moor flooded up to knees!

My friend teaches at Joseph Swan High school in Low Fell, the water was gushing down the stair cases and filled up the lower corridors.

My old office building was evacuated apparently after a landslide

We were sent a picture this morning of my husband's old Lab and office - in Felling - near the bottom of the hill on a road that runs down to the river and can turn into a stream with normal rain. Office was under water yesterday and still has about 1/2 inch today. Lab has about 2 million pounds worth of kit in it! Fortunately it's high enough up on the bench's but trace analysis might be fun for a few weeks!!
Hope nobody wants to paint a boat in the next few weeks - there might be a delay on the paint manufacture.

The pictures around The Gate and central motorway were amazing. The Swan Pub in Heworth was 4 feet under water!

I'm back in the UK at the moment but luckily escaped the storms from yesterday, it was crazy. They had huge hailstones in Leicestershire and flooding in many places including the village of Penkridge in the Midlands where I grew up, one poor bloke got swept away to his death.

You might like to look at this article about it all:

Apparently a Spainish plume is to blame!

It did say on the news tonight that some trains were up and running between England and Scotland. Also it showed pictures of places that had flooded with hardly a drop of water in sight now. Very bizarre! Hope your husband has a stress free journey, there was one chap that had been on the train for 14 hours from London to Edinburgh.

28 June 2012 - West Midlands - severe lightning storms and torrential thundery rain....at Ludlow, in Shropshire, a man driving his car became stuck in a dramatic flash flood from a nearby stream that turned into a raging torrent that appeared in a matter of minutes. He got out of the car but was washed away and drowned....a retired teacher from Ledbury in Herefordshire which was also badly affected by torrential thunderstorms and lightning damage.

THis has been the wettest June on record in many places.

Thanks! I hope all gets back to normal soon for his sake and for all the other people affected.
