We’ve had some pretty amazing stories and photos from VB followers over the last few hours.
The heavy rainfall, as predicted by the Met Office, was reported to be in the region of three inches, with some predicting two weeks worth of rain overnight.
With high tide due at 1pm today, we imagine that things are going to get a lot worse for many before they see any improvement.
Businesses and homes around the Island have been hit hard with flood damage.
Thanks go out to Alan M for his excellent shot of the flooded tunnel at Ryde (first image). To Charlotte Urquhart sent in the incredible image of flooding at Simeon Street Recreation Ground in Ryde (second and third images in gallery – and highlighted on Google map).
Also to Anita Brooker for her great shot of a very wet St John’s station (fourth image in gallery) and Louise Woolford for her huge puddle (fifth image) sent to VB on her mobile.
Finally, Allan Marsh came up trumps with ten superb images of how the flooding has affected those in East Cowes (all remaining images in gallery).
