But I am more sorry for all the people in Cumbria, who have been so badly affected by this terrible downpour ! I wish them all the best, and hope that there is no more rain like that.
We do know that a police officer, trying to stop people going onto a dangerous road bridge, was swept to his death when the bridge suddenly collapsed. I feel for his family.

Here, while Sydney was sweltering, Melbourne got the whole month's rainfall in 24 hours too... but that was only a couple of inches. Still, enough for flash floods.
