UK farmers warn of rotting crops after Storm Babet flooding

Potato and cereal crops are likely to have been heavily damaged by the recent devastating floods across the UK, farmers have warned. Entire fields have been submerged in water after Storm Babet swept across the country, with crops ruined. Extreme weather events are becoming more likely and frequent due to climate breakdown, and have caused food shortages and price increases. The storms have left at least seven people dead and hundreds more homeless after flash floods followed heavy rain. An estimated 1,250 properties in England have been flooded while about 30,000 properties have needed flood protection, according to the Environment Agency. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/oct/25/farmers-crops-uk-floods

          This should serve the Govt as a wake up call to implement mitigation measures to avert such in the future.

This devastating impact highlights the increasing frequency of extreme weather events and the connection between climate breakdown and its consequences.
