NOT THAT IM WORRIED

NOT THAT I’M WORRIED…

Aside.

400 years ago today on January 30th 1607 there was a storm surge which caused severe flooding in S Wales and SW England.  The giant wall of water surged up the Bristol Channel at 30 mph and caused the death of 2000 people.  200square miles were covered by water which flowed four miles inland in Devon.  There is now speculation that it was a tsunami and a possibility that after 400 years it could happen again at a cost of 13 billion pounds.  We do live on a hill, but still…

Not to worry Zoe. Since the tsunami they are more careful to study seismic changes and are pre-warned. That's the theory anyway. Fancy knowing Jennifer Saunders!
