THIS YEAR has been the wettest in the Netherlands this century - and there's still one month to go, says the Dutch weather agency Meteo Consult.

So far 1,155mm has fallen, topping the 1,148mm that fell in 1965, the wettest year to date, and well above the 802mm annual average. This year, the Dutch have been drenched mainly in June, September and October.
