Junction Road under water

The water must have been two feet deep here. It was like this from the bottom of the Clay Loan to the bottom of Tankerness Lane.

The flood in 2006 was much worse than the previous ones in the 70's. I can remember it being up to the top of the skirting boards in the house we stayed in then, 88 Junction Road.
In 2006 the water was coming in the house we live in now just along the road "Roma". The floor level is approx 18" higher than the previous house so considerably more water.
