Britu salās sākušies pirmssvētku plūdi (Video, Foto)

Grave concerns: There are concerns for the graves at St Woolos Cemetery, in Newport, Gwent, where many of the gravestones submerged and a large area of the site was covered in waterLielbritānijā spēcīgu nokrišņu rezultātā izziņotas vismaz 400 plūdu trauksmes. Vairākās vietās uzsākta cilvēku evakuācija un traucēta satiksme. Sākušies zemes nogruvumi. Bet salu ziemeļu daļā sasnigusi bieza sniega kārta. Arī prognozes nav iepriecinošas, jo brīvdienās tiek solīts vel vairāk nokrišņu.
