Heavy rain is set to hit swollen rivers in Cumbria, where some regions have been hit by flooding three times within a month.

Up to 120mm of rain is expected to fall in parts of the North West - which has already suffered the wettest December since records began in 1910 - between now and Saturday.

Its amazing that mother nature can still keep all the resources from the environmental agency at bay.

The army is involved now, and it just makes you think are we really now this helpless to hold back the floods. .

Business and Homes are being flooded. Anyone trying to sell a home or business has lost any chance of that.

We see the local people with a tough stance, "We wont be beaten" but the flood is only the start.

There is a donations topic running click me

The shocking thing is, this isn't coastal this is in land and pretty much coming off the hills. We had heavy rain about a hour or so ago, and its heading NE. Rivers will burst if the clouds keep that force of rain, no question.

Its just shocking in the 21st century.

Its time the government over ruled the EU directive regarding not dredging rivers. Years of build up of silt and gravel has made rivers a lot shallower. I read some where a directive from the EU came out around 2001 ish forbidding the dredging so as to protect the habitat of the river beds.

Had a wander down to Bala today, the River Dee had spread itself across fields at Rhug as had the lake (Llyn Tegid) at Bala but only in the usual places so no properties were at risk.

The lake had quite a storm on it at the northwest end by Bala, I'll try and put some piccies and vid up later.

How awful this must be for these poor people . I think they are going to have to build on stilts for these affected places. Some architect could come up with a plan I'm sure. Rubber waterproof bottoms on a higher level or something. Am I talking rubbish again?

In Bala, the fields were just like lakes,The sheep were all huddled together at the top of the grassy area of the fields.
