Flooding chaos

The floods chaos that has afflicted Sheffield and many surrounding areas will no doubt prove to be the first major challenge of Gordon Brown's Premiership. The huge damage it has caused to Sheffield will likely see a repair bill that's likely to run into hundreds of millions. From all accounts, many thousands are still stranded tonight and given the size of Sheffield it's a huge rescue operation.

Mother nature has its funny way with the weather, no doubt like previous natural disasters lessons will be learned including the robustness of flood defences(and they did not seem too great in Sheffield). In time recovery will come but it's no comfort to those who've lost their valuables or seen their homes or businesses destroyed by this deluge or rain which has caused chaos in so many parts of the country.
