Carolyn Coleman, 69, who has lived in this home with her husband for 13 years, said she had been in the other end of the home when "the trailer shook and then I heard the bang and then the crash." After commenting she wouldn't be able to replace the wallpaper and the shattered mirror — which she has had for 13 years — she and her husband joked about keeping the rod in place and using it to store toilet paper.

It seems impossible to believe that these pictures are from the States. Our hearts go out to you from England. It seems it will be a long time before things go back to "normal" over there and many people's homes, businesses and lives will be so badly affected. We have had a lot of flooding over here but nothing approaching this!
