With Doncaster receiving a month’s worth of Downpour in just 24 Hours, the mass rain has caused flooding across several parts of Doncaster including Bentley, Fishlake, Tickhill and more. However it wasn’t just a couple of big puddles, The water has destroyed family homes, leaving them with nothing but the clothes on their back, right before Christmas. However, one community that wasn’t as affected by the rain and flooding has decided to pull together to help gather anything they can, from cleaning products to food and money to make sure that those affected can begin rebuilding that they have lost. In this blog post, you can find out about the areas damaged and how you can give something to those affected.
What areas have been affected?
The rain affected many areas of Doncaster, with lakes and rivers becoming double their original size, however, some areas of Doncaster have been affected a lot more than others. With Bentley & Fishlake being one of the worst areas, people have lost cars, their homes and somebody in Derbyshire, also lost their life. The downpour has changed lives, just within a 24 hour period.
Alongside areas being destroyed, many roads have been closed and still remain closed across Doncaster due to the mass of water stopping traffic in its path. Roads in areas such as Bentley and Mexborough have been closed for a number of days as Doncaster Council and the Environment Agency work around the clock to remove the water and get people back into their homes.
