Northern Ireland prepares for Storm Babet as the town of Middleton in Cork suffers from floods

The heavy rain is expected to arrive in Northern Ireland soon with a month’s worth of rain expected in one day.

Roads and several properties were swamped in certain areas, with Cork city and the surrounding county among the places worst affected. Euan Whelton, 21 from the village of Glandore, in Co Cork said he has not seen flooding “this bad” in 10 years. He added: “There were a few houses down there that were flooded, there was probably a foot or two of water inside the houses.

Mr Whelton added that in one of his cousin’s houses, the water was “coming in the back door and going straight out the front door”.“This is on top of already saturated lands and high river levels,” he said.“It is evidence, if any were needed, of our changing climate and the issues that it presents.“ “I know from speaking with council staff that some of the issues they are dealing with are unprecedented, with roads which have never flooded now under water.
