Storm Angus

Temple Meads station closed
 As of an hour ago, the mainline link from London to South Wales was closed as Temple Meads station in Bristol is flooding with rain from Storm Angus

 The problem is caused because in Old English - Mead means - land by a river and Temple Meads is in a basin.

 I don't know where the trains will be diverted to, the area to the North of Gloucester is always flooded as far up the country as Worcester, and across to Evesham.
 To the south of Weston-Super-Mare, the problem is the opposite as the Somerset Levels are peat bogs.
