I haven't seen this link about the disaster posted anywhere this side of the Atlantic yet, so thought I would share it here :

It is like a John Wyndham novel.

Personally I find it hard to register disasters: it always seems to take a day or so for them to really dawn on me. For some reason this one seemed utterly terrible right from the start, even before the really bad news stories started coming out. I think it's the domestic level of the stories: Lynmouth or Boscastle scaled unimaginably huge. I relate to flooding on a level that I can't really grasp manmade disaster - is it just me?
