Clonakilty Flooding 2012

28 06 2012

I woke up at 5 this morning to a text from my Mum, she was sat in her bedroom with our dog looking out the window and crying.

The reason for her early morning tears, our house had flooded.

She woke up to the dog making an odd sound and found it swimming around in the hallway with dirty water halfway up the stairs, what a way to start a Thursday.

It isn’t just the house that is ruined, her car which was parked outside is also a write off.

Still at least she can take consolation in the fact that she isn’t alone. Over 70mm of rain fell on parts of Cork last night and there is no access in or out of Clonakilty or Douglas due to over 4ft of flooding. According to an ESB spokesman there are 13,000 homes without electricity at the moment.
