Caption: Flooded residential area, Carlisle. The high water mark is visible on the walls of the houses (right), almost to the top of the doorways. On 8th January, 2005, heavy rain fell in Carlisle in Cumbria, England. The equivalent of one month's worth of rain (over 100 millimetres) fell in 36 hours, causing the River Eden and its tributaries to overflow severely. This resulted in the worst flood for more than 100 years. Hundreds of people were evacuated as homes flooded and roads were closed. Three people died and millions of pounds worth of damage was caused to nearly 3000 properties. Photographed on 9th January, 2005.
