Great Britain. England is threatened by severe flooding

Great Britain.  England is threatened by severe flooding

The British Meteorological Services are warning that England could experience severe flooding in February. Presumably caused by the La Nina phenomenon, influenced by the weather at the time.

The UK government has launched a campaign to raise public awareness of the real threat of large-scale flooding. The Guardian wrote that two-thirds of the residents of the flood-threatened area were unaware of the dangers on Monday. Government agencies have confirmed that the military is ready to assist in the event of a large-scale flood that is difficult to contain.

The Met Office meteorological services have forecast that England will experience severe floods from La Nina and drought in February. Drained soil has difficulty absorbing large amounts of water that can remain above the surface and inundate farms, buildings, and farmland.

The Environment Agency said there are nearly five million residential and commercial buildings in England’s flood risk zone.

La Nina is an anomaly that occurs when the surface temperature of the Pacific Ocean near the equator, especially off the coast of South America, is below average. This phenomenon has a significant impact on the weather in different parts of the world. Researchers report that climate change favors La Niña, as well as its opposite, El Niño. The World Meteorological Organization said the former will affect winter weather for the third time in a row.

Will Lang of the Met Office stated that the closer we get to 2023, the greater the risk of unstable weather. He noted that this winter is another winter likely to be affected by La Nina, as was the case last winter, so “it would not be unusual for the wettest part of the season with the highest risk of flooding to occur again in February…”

This year, in February, the people of England suffered from river floods and floods. Lang added that the two months leading up to February this year – January and December – were relatively dry.

More extreme events due to climate change

The Guardian noted that since 1998, England has had the 10 wettest years in history. This does not mean, however, that a summer with heavy rain or snowfall excludes a drought problem, as this year has shown. July 2022 turned out to be the driest July in England since 1935. This is the month in which the record for the highest temperature ever recorded in the UK was broken, 40.3°C in Lincolnshire.

Carolyn Douglas of the Environment Agency emphasized that as a result of negative climate changes, various weather records are broken every year. She added that there is a case in which 180 percent of the rain falls for seven days in February, which usually falls throughout the month. “We can see that there are more extreme things that are happening because of climate change,” she said.
