250 square miles of Somerset known as the SOMERSET levels completely flooded. Thousands of homes evacuated with prime pasture and arable land put out of production for for at least six months.

The counties of Devon and Cornwalls' coastal areas devastated similarly coastal area of Wales.

The highly populated Thames Valley flooded with thousands of homes evacuated and with many more under threat because of further bad weather cycles exascerbating the problems.

Compensation and restitution once this weather pattern ends will certainly cost millions probably billions particularly after the undertaking of prime minister Cameron saying however much it costs the money will be made available.

The flood map shows that the flooding has reached the border of Heathrow International airport the world's busiest airport which has aircraft arriving and taking off every one and a half minutes
