Flood alert warning: Reminder from Wealden Council

Flood Alert: Coastal areas of Pevensey seafront
Importance: High

A Flood Alert has been issued by the Environment Agency.
Flood Alert in force: Coastal areas of Pevensey seafront.

Flooding is possible for: Coastal areas of Pevensey Sea Front between Sovereign Harbour and Beach including Norman Road Pevensey, The Promenade Pevensey, The Parade Pevensey, Beachlands, Normans Bay and the Cooden Beach Hotel.

Be prepared.

Wednesday morning’s tide caused some flooding to Herbrand Walk, between Normans Bay and Cooden. Although tides will be lower tonight (07/11/2018), moderate winds and waves will persist and we suspect Herbrand Walk may flood again up to two hours either side of tonight’s high water, potentially becoming impassable. Impacts are not expected along the rest of Pevensey sea front.

High tide at Eastbourne 22:59 on 07/11/2018 will be accompanied by South Westerly Force 5 winds. The weather will decrease tide table values by -0.04m (surge) giving a forecast tide level of 7.33m Chart Datum (3.68mAOD) at Eastbourne.

Tides will remain of similar magnitude until Saturday. Herbrand Walk may be affected by flooding up to two hours either side of high tide until the weekend. We’ll continue to monitor tide levels and forecasts and update our messages. Please plan driving routes to avoid driving through flood water. This message will be updated by 11:00 on 8/11/2018.
