Not flooded


You may have heard that parts of Oxford are experiencing flooding right now after very heavy rainfall in the past week or so.

Just to let you know, I live on the second floor of an apartment block at least 5 or 6 metres above the ground and although the flats are right next to the canal, we’ve not been affected. The canal looks pretty normal actually, from what I can see. The bigger problem is the Thames River which runs to the west (the other side) of the canal to where my flat is.

There’s a chance that an electrical substation that is potentially the one that supplies my flat and is in the flood zone could be knocked out overnight, which may affect me…however the risk is still pretty small.

I do have some friends who are on the ground floor in the flood zone and the water is lapping against their doors…so I hope they get through OK.

    Thanks for your concern, Mason. I got rained upon on my way back from a party just then. But apart from that, I’m completely high and dry.
