It was on GMTV this morning. Can't remember the exact name of the place where it happened, it began with B & ended in Castle (I think) but they had a months worth of rain yesterday & it has flooded the place completely. It looked really bad. There were cars bobbing all over the place like corks & everyone is bedding down in the leisure centre. They're forcast more rain today & some don't know when they can go home, if they have a home left. There are also 15 people unnacounted for. It's serious stuff but only in a small area, I think.

Hey Sherrie,

I;m off to cornwall on sat too!! The flooding looked really scary, luckily i am going to Falmouth which is the south coast.

Please Geeks all keep your fingers crossed for us, that it will be nice weather.

To all you Geeks coming to Cornwall - DON'T PANIC!!!!! :)

We live about 12 miles from Boscastle and we didn't get anything like the rain that they had......the flooding was very localised (Is that a word?!!!) It all happened within a very small area.

Anyway, forecast for the rest of this week is not too good......just a normal cornish summer really!!!

Lets just hope the sun shines soon!!! ;)
