Jonah Brown Curses Kent

Gordon’s visited Kent last Thursday. It didn’t take long for the effects of this visit to be felt though, by Saturday the storms were raging across Kent:

“Dover port was closed just after midday on Saturday due to the high winds but reopened at 1630 GMT. Kevin Richardson from the Port of Dover Authority said there were ongoing delays to ferry crossings. The Dartford river crossing, Sheppey crossing and Medway bridge were closed by Kent Police on Saturday afternoon.”

The wind battered and the rain poured down:

“Severe flooding and sewage contamination has forced a church school to close today and send home hundreds of pupils. The heavy rainfall overnight combined with a cloudburst between 7.30am and 8.15am on Friday morning caused sudden flooding to several buildings at Bennett Memorial Diocesan School in Tunbridge Wells. The main hall, classrooms and playground were swamped with flood water and sewage.”

The curse of Jonah strikes again…
