London weather: City awash with flooding and heavy rain

More thunderstorms are on the way in England, the day after Londres experienced flash floods following almost a month’s worth of rainfall on Sunday.

O Met Office has issued yellow warnings for thunderstorms and rain in England and Scotland for the next four days, which could cause more flooding and transport disruption.

After the heavy downpour on Sunday, flooding damaged properties and led to road closures.

Major incidents were declared at two east London hospitals, com 100 patients being evacuated from Whipps Cross Hospital. Enquanto isso, mais que 1000 flood-related calls have been made to the Brigada de Incêndio de Londres.

The floods came as St James’s Park recorded 41.8mm of rain on Sunday, almost as much as the capital’s average July total of 45mm.

Flooding of homes and businesses is likely and could happen quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater and isolated lightning strikes.

The agency also warns that where flooding or lightning strikes occur, delays and some cancellations to train and bus services are likely.

Are the London floods linked to the climate crisis?

After similar scenes in the capital on 12 julho, our environment correspondent Harry Cockburn asked whether flooding in London is connected to the climate crisis.

As average global temperatures rise, the atmosphere can hold more water, worsening impacts of heavy rainfall, scientists warn.

Meteorologists are always especially careful not to conflate short-term weather with long term climate, as sometimes freak weather events may have no clear link to the climate crisis.

Contudo, over longer periods of time, extreme weather incidents can build up patterns which then provide scientists with new trends which can be at least partly attributed to the alterations in the global climate caused by human-made emissions.
