Φωτο από τη χθεσινή Βιβλική καταστροφή στη Βρετανία.

Ακραία καιρικά φαινόμενα έλαβαν χώρα εχθές στη Βρετανία.
Άνεμοι που άγγιξαν τα 70 μίλια την ώρα καθώς επίσης και πολύ βροχή κατάφεραν να καταστρέψουν περιούσιες, να πλημμυρίσουν δρόμους. Παρακάτω σας παραθέτουμε ένα φωτορεπορτάζ που απεικονίζει τη βιβλική καταστροφή που υπέστη η Βρετανία. Ευτυχώς, δεν υπήρξαν νεκροί.
