Back in my day this were all just fields. Actually, it still is. #floods #Worcestershire @ Eckington http://t.co/iDtXiyhp— @Adam_Ef 01 January 2013

This is a nice change. The Met Office weather map has been covered in dark blue rain clouds for days. Now they're down to just a few dots here and there.
Today's flood map from the Environment Agency. It's a wonder the sun is shining through all those triangles.
A HOMEOWNER whose riverside property flooded twice over Christmas has remained positive despite fears it will be waterlogged again, saying it is the price he pays for living in such a beautiful location.
Full story here
Andrew Brown: I have noticed that the walkway along the river on the west side in Worcester is exposed as depicted. The water is deep, cold and any unwitting cyclist, child, or intoxicated/blind/semi-sighted person could easily end up in serious difficulties if they fell here. There isn't any excuse for the council to have left this so exposed.
Worcester News: The ramp has now been cordoned off.
Some quite high levels being seen at top of Severn. We're going to put up some extra defences at #ironbridge wharfeage later today— @DaveThroupEA 01 January 2013

Quite a few folk have been asking - so yes the car is still at Pitchcroft #worcester http://t.co/ag8HADNy— @DaveThroupEA 01 January 2013
River Severn at #worcester and #upton will remain pretty stable. Probably peaking on 3rd, up to 4 inches higher than now.— @DaveThroupEA 01 January 2013
River Severn at #ironbridge will peak overnight, around another foot or so to go. #bewdley peaking early on 3rd - about 8 in more than now— @DaveThroupEA 01 January 2013
Wye at #hereford is peaking now about a foot below the peak on Sunday. Peaking in Ross this afternoon.— @DaveThroupEA 01 January 2013
Happy New Year. Day 14 (and for me the last) of this flood. Quick roundup in a sec.— @DaveThroupEA 01 January 2013
