Massive Swiss chalet flooding in London: Freezing temperatures prompted a mains line to rupture, cutting off water to thousands of people and resulting in 3-foot floodwaters.

In the recordings that have been made available, an eyewitness can be heard describing the situation and saying: “I guess there’s someone caught over there, pregnant female, yeah that’s why they have the rescue boat. They merely yelled “pregnant female.”

On camera, three emergency workers can be seen dragging a small rescue boat while donning orange high-visibility jackets.

“Look how deep it is, that window is going to burst soon,” the witness remarked. An important flood that is 800 meters wide is being fought by eight fire engines and more than 60 firemen.

Twenty individuals were evacuated from basement apartments, while thirteen adults and one child were rescued from their homes. Social media footage show firefighters, some of whom are carrying dogs and wearing pajamas, evacuating residences on the sea.

Thames Water also claimed that by providing them with bottled water, it was assisting the most vulnerable. The Met Office said that certain parts of London had a -7C temperature drop on Saturday morning (19F).

The London Fire Brigade reports that at 2:50 on Saturday morning, eight fire engines and roughly 60 firemen responded to a plea for help on Belsize Road in Camden. An area of around 800 meters was flooded to a depth of half a meter by a 42-inch water main rupture.

The fire department reports that numerous homes were submerged, and rescuers had to lead roughly 20 occupants to safety. “The fire brigade have been great – rescue-boated a pregnant lady,” one resident told Ham&High news. They did a great job of rescuing the pregnant woman, though I couldn’t see if she ultimately entered the boat or not.

Firefighters are anticipated to stay at the scene for a number of hours while the water authority works to isolate the ruptured water main. Flood water is being diverted by workers using flood barriers and a high volume pumping machine. At Swiss Cottage Leisure Centre, a rest facility has been established for the affected people.
