Metric and Imperial measurements[edit]

2m does not = 7ft. 10ft does not = 3m. Can't alter it to one or the other or a more accurate mean - maybe - as I only was around to shovel muck the following week. Anyone? Plutonium27 21:02, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

90ft of water hit boscastle.

Effects?[edit]

Why doesent any1 put the effects of boscastle flood on here ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.214.98.62 (talk) 11:11, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

I have to agree with the above IP comment: the article talks about the causes of the flood, and describes the timeline of clear-up, but says nothing about whether any lives were lost (OK, it's in the infobox), does not describe the events of the day, does not describe the damage. Someone just added a statement about the number of cars destroyed, which was deleted (misguidedly? perhaps because it didn't fit into "causes"?) as vandalism, but the info ought to be in here somewhere. Perhaps a section has been lost in the course of editing, though looking at the recent history doesn't offer a sudden drop in article length. Very strange. PamD (talk) 09:39, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

NOTE[edit]

1 day is not a date — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.100.46.169 (talk) 17:09, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, thanks. Technical explanation: the infobox template offers a "duration" parameter, which the original editor duly filled in, but that's intended for start and end dates rather than a length of time. NebY (talk) 17:26, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
