We are naturally greatly concerned for all whose livelihoods have been affected by the recent bad weather.
Cornwall and Devon are very much open for business and whilst the Somerset Levels have been badly hit, nine-tenths of the county is unaffected.
As is characteristic of the tourism industry, businesses are rising to the challenge. Some hotels in Cornwall, for example, are being enterprising and sending cars to Exeter to pick up guests whose trains can go no further.
Large waves and strong winds are threatening to cause further significant flooding along the Devon and Dorset coasts tomorrow where some communities and defences are vulnerable after this week’s storms.
Further heavy rainfall is expected starting this evening continuing into Saturday, exacerbating the risks of flooding from rivers and surface water across the south west, central and south east of England.
Chair of the agency Lord Smith said: "This weekend will see no respite in the extreme weather and I urge people especially in southern England to be prepared for further flooding and to sign up to Environment Agency flood warnings.”

Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin has visited the Devonshire town of Dawlish where a storm on Tuesday undermined a large section of the track.
Train companies should lower fares to help people affected by the floods, Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin has said.
"People's rail travel is getting affected. I want train companies to help them by reducing their fares," he said, Inspecting the devastating damage to rail tracks at Dawlish in Devon.
McLoughlin denied the Government had been slow to respond to the flooding but recognised that people "were angry", adding he was hopeful Network Rail would keep their promise of repairing the destruction at Dawlish, that has severely disrupted south-west England train services, in around six weeks.
Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin will visit the Devonshire town of Dawlish later today to see "what needs to be done" to the railway line that has been wrecked by the floods.
"It will be an opportunity for the Secretary of State to discuss the response with the local communities there," the spokesman added.
Moorlands farmer, James Windslade, is transporting 300-400 cattle in a convoy from flooded farmland to higher ground so that he can sell them to an abattoir.
Windslade said: "it's a desperate situation. We have nowhere to farm these animals. We have to sell them."
Around 30 people had to be evacuated from their homes on the seafront in Dawlish, according to a Devon County Councillor.
John Clatworthy said the undermining of the railway track had not been seen in more than a century: "The railway was built in around the 1850s and there had been two breaches before now, around 150 years ago. The storm last night was unbelievable.
"It is not just Dawlish that is affected, this railway line is to Plymouth, the naval bases, Cornwall - it is a lifeline.
"Something needs to be done and it is not just a five minute job."
