Leicester ‘could get worse’, local officials say

Leicester ‘could get worse’, local officials say

While the floodings in Leicester has reached its peak, the effects Storm Henk could have on the civilian infrastructure is projected to continue.

Martin Fletcher, Leicester City Council's director of highways, said on Thursday that the flooding situation has peaked in the city, but the consequences of Storm Henk will continue.

The government issued a flood warning for River Soar at Mountsorrel Lock and riverside properties and mills, saying river levels are forecast to remain high, especially as rain is forecasted all throughout Friday.

Muslim Aid is on the ground providing urgent relief to those affected.

“When we saw the water flood our street, I was worried for my elderly parents and how they will be getting out as they are not able to walk and stand for long”, a resident of Loughborough told Ahmed Choudhury, Muslim Aid’s Fundraising and Volunteers Co-ordinator when he arrived to Leicester to oversee operations.

“We are now staying at a family members house and was only able to get a few items due to our car being damaged by the flood”, the resident, who asked not to be named, added.

“I am now worried as my property has got water going into it and the carpets are getting damaged. We are just getting by financially and now we will need to look at replacing our carpets as well as a few other electrical items that have been affected in our kitchen as the floods came through our back door as well as the front door.“
