Just look at the mess the water leaves behind when the tide recedes a bit. This is the bottom of Blakeney High Street. The flood was on a par with the 1953 flood, which I remember well.
My family went down last night to watch the awesome destruction of the sea just in our village. The waves were pouring over the bank like a waterfall and the Duck Pond has completely gone.
My grandson said it was like watching the end of the world.
I feel gutted especially for Cobo who has worked so hard for years to make our Duck Pond so beautiful with thousands of pounds worth of ducks.
I spoke to him a while ago and he had been down to see the damage and is now trying a rescue operation as the black swans are walking about the street.
I fear there won't be many of the ducks left as they will have drowned.
We were without electricity for a few hours but many are still without.
This devastation has happened all down our East Coast with many homes either lost or flooded. People have had to be evacuated and they must dread what they will find when they return home.
Nothing is worse than the mess left behind after a flood like this.
I feel so sorry for them but thank God I don't think there is any loss of life.
Take care everyone,
