Don't know how it happened - tragic. Flood water is so powerful, you don't really stand a chance.

Despite flood warnings some people refused to leave the CMC Caravan park at Chatsworth , and chose to stay put, putting others at risk including the emergency services involved in evacuating the area along the Derwent valley.

I read that they didnít evacuate the campsite was because they had spent the evening in the pub having a meal and drinking so couldnít legally move until the morning.
When they left the site no warnings were given

I have relatives in South Yorkshire. Their only issue was a flooded garden, but that's a regular event due to an underground stream, the house is 5ft above so no chance of flooding.

However they remember 2007 and the Don which is a mile downhill away almost burst its banks. This year was much worse. 90mm of monsoon heavy rain in a day was simply too much.

The post 2007 works kept Sheffield, Meadowhall dry, but the result was more serious flooding in Rotherham and Doncaster.

I live in South Yorkshire and we've had a tremendous amount of rain, add to this the amount of water that's fell on the Pennines and progressed down the two main rivers, that's a lot of water for low lying villages and towns in its path to cope with and its on top of their own rainfall.

Did the site at Chatsworth actually flood? We were evacuated about 6pm and just went home but we never heard if the site actually flooded.

Hi
Sorry to hear about the death of Annie Halls.
And my thoughts are with the family.
A pointless death in my view.

While i am not trying to be disrespectful.
The Derwent in full flood is a bloody dangerous place.
Why was she walking in or near fast flood water.
That was also putting others life, at risk to rescue someone from the river.

As for the Caravan site at Chatsworth.
Was the site asked to be evacuated by the wardens or not?

That really needs to be confirmed by someone who was present on site.
As Pixie above.

Cheers
Ray

The Chatsworth CMC site was listed on the Environment agency website as having a severe flood risk with evacuation of the Caravan site and surrounding areas and villages as imminent. I believe from someone who was due to visit the site for the weekend that the Club contacted them cancelling their booking.

Itís wasnít just the Caravan site that flooded, its was all along the Derwent valley, including the approach roads to the site and surrounding areas especially along the A6 Corridor.

As I understood from the news, Mrs Hall and her husband were on the way home from Derby and were met by the flood at Rowsley on the Derwent. Perhaps they got out of the car to try and outrun it? Don't know for sure though.

The Chatsworth wardens phoned us at home on the Thursday night, my understanding was that they asked by the environment agency to evacuate the site as there was a serious risk to life. I can't be 100% what was said as I was a bit shocked but that was my impression.

SO sorry this poor lady lost her life.
