The 1948 Berwickshire floods

On August 12th 1948, the county of Berwickshire endured one of its worst ever flooding disasters when the rivers Tweed, Blackadder, Whiteadder, Till and Eye Water all overflowed, after a third of the annual rainfall for the area fell in just six days.

The BBC looks back at the disaster at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/south_of_scotland/7554405.stm .
