Experts have estimated that Storm Desmond has already caused an estimated £500m worth of damage, with over 5,000 homes in Cumbria alone affected by flood damage. With more rain falling in the past 24 hours, local residents and businesses are yet again facing further chaos and disruption today. The town of Glenridding is underwater yet again, with a reported 66mm of rain falling, overwhelming rivers and leaving the town’s residents stranded.
Clean up efforts have been ongoing in the worst affected areas including Carlisle, Keswick and Cockermouth. However, many households are still without power and thousands of local residents are facing the possibility that their homes will not be ready to live in until the New Year.
With local authorities overwhelmed by the scale of the damage, Hydro Cleansing are providing support to the community in Cumbria by sending complimentary Road Sweepers and Tankers with crews from our depot in Croydon. Our volunteers have headed to the worst affected areas to removing large quantities of silt and mud that can cause further flooding if it is allowed to enter the drainage systems.
For the last few days we have been working alongside Cumbria County Council, DEFRA, the Police and the Army, utilising the experience we gained during the 2014 floods in the South of England, to ensure the best possible assistance is given.
With more rain expected in the next few days, along with snowfall and strong winds, emergency services have advised local residents to not take any risks around flood waters. A spokesman for the Cumbria Police has urged the public “not to approach or go near any flood water as it is extremely fast flowing and can be a threat to people’s lives”.
