Published on : Thursday, June 23, 2016

London floodSeveral streets of London and south-east are experiencing flood and clogged-drains due to heavy torrential downpour on the EU referendum day.

 

 

London Fire Brigade has received over 300 calls from citizens and tourists within a few hours.

 

 

South-east London and Essex have issued red flood warnings throughout the region, as the Capital is expected to receive a month’s rainfall in just a few hours.

 

 

London Fire Brigade has received several calls regarding lightning-strikes, trapped vehicles and flooding of properties.

 

 

Strong winds have already disrupted the lives of tourists and citizens by flooding the streets.

 

 

The storm has also caused a gigantic disruption to London’s travel network. Thousands of travellers and commuters are stranded. DLR, the District line and London Overground either got delayed or got suspended because of flood. South West, Southern and TFL Rail services are suffering serious delays because of the storm.

 

 

Poor weather has caused Gatwick Express southbound services to be suspended.

 

 

Four flood warnings have been issued by the Environment Agency. The flood warnings cover rivers in Sidcup, Bromley and Basildon. In the South East, 22 alerts have been issued by the officials. Some corners of London can expect hail-storms too with torrential rains.

 

 

The temperature across Wales, northern England and southern Scotland can rise up to 20C.

 

 

The weather condition is expected to improve by Friday 24th June.

 

 

Tourists are advised to stay indoors. Travellers, who have plans to visit London during this week, should try to postpone the tickets if possible.
