Shrewsbury Resident Surveys Flooded Home After River Severn Bursts Its Banks

Many homes in Shrewsbury, England, experienced severe flooding on Friday, January 22, after the River Severn burst its banks and inundated parts of the town, local media reported.

This video was shared by Twitter user @ConnorPR, who said the footage was taken inside her house at 11 am on Friday. The Shrewsbury Council reported the river rising to 4.9 meters (16 feet).

The Environment Agency warned of continued flood risk on Friday afternoon while the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for Sunday across Wales and parts of England.

@ConnorPR noted that this was the third flood she had experienced in 11 months. Credit: @ConnorPR via Storyful
