Flooding in Blackpool. Again.

The village is underwater again it seems. Maybe the developers will finally have their wish and it will finally be killed off by this.

Looks like it - unfortunately.

I wonder if the Centra's been hit again? That'll be the fourth time he's been flooded. How much longer can the local businesses carry on?

College road is up a hill surely? Do you mean the western road?

Blackpool is. Probably Douglas and Glanmire as well.

The river in Glanmire is frighteningly high at the moment but it hasn't flooded where I am yet.

This is most certainly not the case.


High tide has just passed. I hope the city centre didn't get done again. Would be the 3rd time in 9 years if so.


The flooding back in 2004 was easily the worst I've ever experienced. Much worse than 2009.

its the same old ****e in blackpool, the council put in a culvert that cant handle the amount of water that needs to go through it during heavy rains. They refuse to do anything about it. Sure it took them over a year to fix the quay walls.

I feel sorry for the people in blackpool.
