07/01/2014 - Flooding in the UK
The country ended the year with flooding and dangerous coastal weather warnings. Forecasters have now predicted yet more flooding and high winds this week with flood warnings out across the UK.
Some of our boats have been used in recent flood rescues. This was evident a month ago on the 5th December 2013 in Hull when the highest tidal surge in 60 years caused the Humber Estuary to start flooding parts of the surrounding areas including central areas of Kingston upon Hull.
Rescue operations were set out to help evacuate residents from at risk areas and areas that had already been flooded. The use of Humber ribs were apparent in the Hull rescue operation as seen in the picture kindly provided by the Hull Daily Mail. The boat in question allowed the rescue authorities to help escort victims of flooding to safer areas.
We would advise all to not take any risks, stay safe and follow any instructions given by the Environment Agency and other appropriate bodies in relation to flooding and dangerous seas.
