I'm sure I'm not the only one who knows people who've been affected by the floods. I feel so sorry for them. My friend lives on the Thames by choice and yes she did know the risks. They built a house a couple of years ago and had to build on stilts. There were lots of regulations they had to follow. Now I know some people think hard luck they choose to live there but really? The rain we've had has been way more than expected and river levels have risen to levels that are unusual. No matter if they live there by choice they're still suffering and more needs to be done to prevent it getting so bad again. No we can't control nature but we can try to ensure things don't get so bad again.
