UK braces for worst flood crisis


London, February 14 - Britain continues to battle extreme weather conditions which are set to worsen tomorrow. The armed forces have now been scrambled to assist with the relief and rescue efforts as British Prime Minister David Cameron pledged "we cannot let this situation happen again". "Of course you get these abnormal weather events but we've got to do better as a country to make ourselves more resilient," he told BBC Radio. Tens of thousands of homes remain without power and there is renewed travel disruption after hurricane-force winds continued to batter parts of the country.Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin told the House of Commons that 61 million pounds would be spent to help repair the damage but the Labour said at least 118 million pounds was needed for rail repairs alone.As well as 16 severe flood warnings, the UK Environment Agency has also issued about 360 less serious flood warnings and alerts, mostly in southern England and the Midlands.Hundreds of members of the armed forces are continuing to help those affected by the flooding and around 2,000 remain on stand by.
