Storms caused localised flash flooding across the UK, as more than a month’s rainfall fell in parts of Birmingham in just one hour.
TR deployed a small team, prioritising the elderly and vulnerable, retrieving loved and valuable items and clearing dirty flood water from homes of residents. They also liaised with the environment agency and local authorities to help those most in need to ensure those whose houses had been devastated by the flash floods could return to their homes as soon as possible.
The deployed teams cleaned out a total of 12 houses after flood damage rendered them uninhabitable.
13 members of the community were able to move back into their homes and begin the process of rebuilding their lives within 48 hours of the flood destruction.
