St John's in in Worcester, and is close to the river that burst it's banks in the central of the city, I can't tell you too much because I've not lived here long myself!
I recall St John, just an area of worcester being worse effected as the bridge over the Severn that connects them to the city centre was too unsafe to use and was closed to traffic and later pedestrians. People were unable to get to work, and a lot of the shops had to close early - mine included for safety of staff returning home, and of course the lack of people able to get into town! The bus service had up to four hour queues!
From what I saw on the news the flooding here wasn't as bad as in the south, but I am aware that a considerable amount of damage was done to a lot of properties and gardens, and I'm sure there are keen gardeners out there that did have their gardens effectively ruined, but I've been unable to source local gardener groups or active forums to inquire.
There's some additional photos of the floods...
