Valentine’s Day Storm
Friday night, and with winds already strong and 60mph gusts forecast, on top of ground saturated by weeks of rain….. Yeovil Rapid Relief Team had a gut feeling that there would be something to do!
The first call came at just before 9:00pm from a member of the congregation; a large tree had fallen across the A30, a main route on the north of Yeovil. A few calls and the team were on the way.
As the RRT approached the Police roadblocks, it was clear they were glad to see them! There were over 50 tree incidents across the area! And here was one of the largest! A huge tree completely blocking the road, and as it had fallen, it had brought large parts of other trees with it.
