Borth and Dolybont Flood Photos
I had a slightly more interesting run than usual this morning. On the way into Borth there seemed to be an unusual amount of emergency service activity and then when I go to the caravan site that I normally run through it was 6 foot underwater. There were coast guards, the RNLI, ambulances, Fire Brigade and Police everywhere and the RNLI helicopter was hovering overhead.
All part of a major rescue operation due to flooding in Borth and Dolybont. The River Leri has burst its banks and people have been evacuated from the caravan sites by dinghy and several people have been air-lifted to safety. It’s not looking good out there.
I’ve been into Dolybont and friends houses are flooded with water running straight through them. I’ve tried to contact them to help out and offer them a place to stay but so far have been unable to get hold of them. It looks as the emergency services are putting people up temporarily in the Youth Centre in Borth, so hopefully everyone is OK.
