The high and muddy Minnowburn as it flows, under the Edenderry Road, towards the confluence J3268 : The Lagan and Minnowburn near Belfast (2) with the Lagan. This is a view of the bridge J3268 : Winter at Minnowburn near Belfast (3) (February 2009) during drier weather and this shows a similar view J3268 : The Minnowburn in flood (5) (January 2008) during another period of heavy rain. J3268 : The Minnowburn, Belfast - November 2014(2) shows a similar view, three days later, when the water level had fallen.
The River Lagan in flood 14/15 November 2014

Prolonged rain, during November 2014 (especially on 13 November), caused many rivers and drains to overflow, leading to extensive flooding in many parts of Northern Ireland but particularly Cos Armagh and Down. In Belfast the River Lagan (which has its source in the middle of Co Down J3145 : The source of the River Lagan) had broken its banks in several places. This is a collection of photographs taken between Ballyskeagh and Newforge on 14/15 November 2014. I have included, where possible. links to photographs showing, for comparison, the area without flooding.
