When will it end? Another day of flooding in Worcestershire told by your pictures and tweets on Tuesday, January 8
This live event has finished
- Just when it seemed over, when it seemed river levels in Worcestershire were about to peak came more bad news. The Met Office extended its rain warning into this area.
- Oh, well. That means another day of terrific photos to feast your eyes on.
- Here's another day of flooding, as you saw it.
- Email your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org
That's it for today.
Thanks, again, to all our contributors.

These are some pictures taken by Worcester News over the last few days. It's the first chance I've had to share them.

And a fun side...
This is what Christopher Ritson said about this video:
"This a great clip I took when I was near the river Severn in Worcester.
"By pure chance, when I called into town and saw someone about to reel in some rope using a generator/engine, it just happened to have a water skier attached to the other end. Out came the iPhone and here is the video:"
But there's a funny side to it all too..

Be careful out there. Driving through floodwater can be extremely dangerous.
Down the road at Tewkesbury the hams are well under water.
Support your local shops
As the flooding continues it is important to remember that Worcester, and other riverside towns such as Upton and Tewkesbury, as still very much open and accessible.
Local traders rely on your business, so please don't let them down by staying away.
Praise from highest level for our hard-working Environment Agency teams.
Meanwhile, back at Powick...

Hopefully, the worst is over for Evesham.
And it got worse...
Even the Environment Agency's doughty floods maestro Dave Throup was sensing more trouble on the horizon.

A not-so-cheery start to the day from the Worcester News
WORCESTERSHIRE is in for an unsettled week, with winds and rain to continue until the weekend.
Although conditions are set to improve slightly, the county will remain somewhat damp for some time, with more wintry weather set to make an appearance.
Despite this, it is thought that rivers in the county will have peaked today.
