Storm Dennis FloodsPosted Thursday March 5th 2020
This aerial footage is of recent floods following storm Dennis in the Shropshire & Powys areas.
Being up in the air enabled far reaching views showing the full extent of the floods! The pictures capture what is normally a mass of fields, totally covered in water!
Powys & Shropshire Underwater
Many villages & towns in the area have been affected including Melverley, Kinnerley, Llanymynech, Arddleen, Welshpool, Four Crosses, Llandrinio, Shrewsbury, Ironbidge and many more places in Shropshire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire.
Clear up Begins
Now the water levels are dropping and the tidy up begins, Ridgway Rentals can help.
This last week has seen many homes and businesses affected across the length of the River Severn after flood defences buckled and the Met Office revealed rainfall in February the wettest on record in the UK.

Storm Dennis Floods in Shropshire
Making use of our Self Fly Helicopter Hire, this footage was taken by Ridgway CEO Tim Jones, who took to the skies over the weekend.
This area in Shropshire is situated on the River Severn and River Vyrnwy and stretches across the border between England & Wales near the Powys hills & Rodney’s Pillar.
The River Vyrnwy is a tributary to the River Severn which is Britain’s longest river. The Severn runs for 220 miles from the Welsh mountains, through the Shropshire and Worcestershire countryside and down to the flatlands of the Severn estuary and the Bristol Channel
Flood warnings remain in place affecting many properties and roads in the surrounding area. More information can be found on the Government Flood Information Service
