Britain's heaviest rainfall since records began in 1865
 __________________



8 Jul 09 - "Britain was battered with three months' worth of rain yesterday, with
some parts suffering the heaviest downpours on record.  

"Hastings in East Sussex suffered the most, with around 3 inches (91mm),
and around 105mm, or just over four inches, swamping nearby St Leonards.  

"Those readings are the highest since records began in 1865, and broke the
previous Hastings record of 61mm within 24 hours on August 18, 1952.  

"In London, the Queen was forced to flee as hailstones the size of 20p pieces
hit a garden party at Buckingham Palace."

Train commuters faced chaos as heavy downpours forced the closure of the
Victoria Tube station affecting the District, Circle and Victoria lines. Edgware
Road, Paddington and the Hyde Park Corner stations were also closed.

            All I can say is “Look out this winter.”
