Drowning village: Unprecedented storms flood the village of Moorland, February 19

19 Feb 2014

“It’s a ghost town,” said a resident of the flood-hit Somerset village of Moorland, where constantly rising water levels have reached waist-high after the village was battered by unprecedented storms. Transport to the village has been suspended, with only amphibious vehicles or tractor-trailers able to gain access. All villagers have been forced to evacuate and predicted that they would not soon be able to return safely to their homes. Photos: Reuters
