The Met Office issued an amber warning across most of England for Tuesday, forecasting heavy disruptions and residential damage in the country because of heavy rains and flooding.
London’s Tower Bridge was left under water on Tuesday morning as the capital of England is struggling with torrential rains that have befallen the country.
Shocked Londoners have shared images and videos of the historic landmark looking visibly damp as cars and cyclists tried to make their way through streams of muddy water.
“Not 100% sure how a *bridge* floods, but this was Tower Bridge just now,” one user wrote, posting a clip from the scene.
The Met Office issued an amber warning for parts of England from 6:00am to 11.59pm on Tuesday with heavy downpours and flooding expected.
The weather officials also warned that heavy rains may cause damage to residential buildings, affect journey times and lead to cancellation of services.
In London, Mile End station on the District Line was temporarily closed on Tuesday morning, and the North Circular road was reportedly hit by delays.
The capital of England experienced some serious disruptions this summer after heavy rains caused “operational issues” at London’s major hospitals. In late July, the Whipps Cross Hospital was forced to halt operations temporarily and evacuate patients, and Newham Hospital was diverting all visitors to other facilities after heavy rains caused flooding and power outages.
