Why are you reporting this puzzle?

Boscastle is a tiny port with a natural harbour, set in a narrow ravine. In 2004 Boscastle suffered extensive damage following a flash flood caused by by an exceptional amount of rain over 8 hours. The torrential rain led to a 2 m (7 ft) rise in river levels in one hour. A 3 m (10 ft) wave, believed to have been triggered by water pooling behind debris caught under a bridge and then being suddenly released as the bridge collapsed, surged down the main road. Water speed was over 4 m/s (10 mph), more than enough to cause structural damage. 75 cars, 5 caravans, 6 buildings and several boats were washed into the sea.
