Flooding Around Ross in 2010

5th January 2010

On the 5th January 2010 the heaviest snow fall (about 6" [150mm]) since 1982 occurred and this was part of the coldest weather for 30 years. After the snow fell this was the view from the Prospect out over the loop in the river.

As a result of the subsequent thaw, and rain that fell during this, the snow melted very quickly and the River flooded. The Rudhall Brook was also very high.
