A storm coming in over the U.K. blasted feet of sea foam in a Scotland town. Elsewhere, the same storm caused serious flooding, killing at least four, according to the Daily Mail website.
Torrential rain began Sunday night in the south and west, then spread through northern England to parts of Scotland and Ireland Monday and Monday night. The highest rainfall since Sunday, 108 mm (4.3 inches), was collected at Ravensworth, North Yorkshire, the U.K. Met Office said. The site has a normal September rainfall of only 47 mm (1.9 inches).
The storm's gales at sea whipped up high surf along the North Sea coast. Online images of coastal Scotland showed landscapes literally awash in sea foam churned by the waves, then blown ashore by the strong winds.
