Sheffield Floods June 2007

Sheffield Floods June 2007

On Monday the 25th of June 2007, Sheffield was badly hit by flooding as 'a sixth of the annual rainfall' fell 'in just 12 hours' over the Yorkshire region. PlusNet is still up and running but we are a few heads down as people have been unable to get into the centre of Sheffield, especially coming in from the east of the country. As a consequence it is likely that our phone response times will be below normal, but we've got lots of people using VPN to work remotely and help process tickets. Therefore, if your query can be raised via the tickets system please do so, rather than phoning in. We've started a thread in our forums to share photos and horror stories about last night. Please go and contribute here: http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php?topic=196.msg1294#msg1294 Also, Carol has posted about how it affected us last night in the CSC blog here: http://community.plus.net/csc/2007/06/25/its-raining-its-pouring/

*much* higher than expected rainfall, so people weren't really prepared. Sheffield is far from flat!
