Storm Angus arrived in Exeter Saturday night at around 9pm and had moved east by dawn. It did however rain very hard for around 6 hours and caused quite a lot of localised surface water flooding in the City.
What really amazed me was how quickly the rivers rose and how much water was in the Exe in Exeter by lunchtime.
And then to cap it all the Met Office issued an Amber warning of rain for today – this doesn’t bode well, the rain from Storm Angus was a Yellow warning and as the flow data above shows there is already a huge amount of water in the system
And then I found this on Facebook ….. The amazing Tarr Steps partially washed away – the water that did this damage will eventually end up flowing through Exeter. See here for some photos I took of Tarr Steps in happier days in 2013.
