There was a terrific storm last night - tried to capture it on film, but camera developed glitch and wipes the LOT! Curses! Here in St Ives we had a bit of local flooding, but it mostly drained away to the lower parts of the area. It was a real whizz bang and according to fellow villagers, it came back last night. Thanks to industrial earplugs (I wear them because of Hubby's snoring), I heard nothing, except the complaining of Prodigal 2 who had been up since 4am with it.
The storm mostly hit Camborne, Falmouth and Redruth - abouve is the largest Tesco within 25 miles and there is film footage of water pouring through the ceiling. BBC News covered the event in an article HERE
