Londoner’s Entire Apartment Is Flooded In Horrifying Footage
| Last updated
A Londoner's apartment has been ruined after a thunderous downpour caused flooding this weekend. See the horrifying results for yourself:
The capital city has been hit by torrential rain, with flooding reported right across the region.
And one resident shared their own experience, showing them standing in their flat, wading through water that had flowed in from outside.
In the video, which was shared to TikTok by @kritsgo, the man's toilet can be seen overflowing, with water gushing through his home - first the bathroom, then the hallway and finally the living room.
According to reports, tube stops have also been badly affected by the rain, with at least eight stations forced to close as a result.
Hospitals in Newham have even asked people seeking emergency assistance to go to other medical facilities if at all possible.
It's understood that Clapham and Camberwell, in the south of the city, are the worst-affected areas, although flooding has been reported to the north and north-east, too.
London Fire Brigade revealed that it had been inundated with calls overnight.
In a tweet, the LFB wrote: "Thank you to our 999 Control Officers who took more than 1,000 calls to flooding incidents into the early hours of this morning, as well as to crews who rescued people from cars, assisted people from their homes and protected properties from flood water."

This is the second time in a matter of days that London has been hit by torrential rain and flooding.
Earlier this month, downpours battered much of the UK, with parts of north west London - as well as the south west of the city - badly affected by flash flooding.
Trains and travel were also been hit severely by the weather, as the water submerged cars and left trains unable to run whatsoever.
Social media was awash with pictures showing the damage and disruption in areas such as Maida Vale, Highgate and Golders Green in the north of the city, and Barnes, Raynes Park and Richmond towards the south west.
At the time, LFB tweeted that they had been called about more than 150 instances of flooding in south west London alone.
Police also asked travellers in cars to avoid the Raynes Park station area due to flooding.
"Roads are flooded and dangerous to drive down," they said.
