The Environment Agency has sent out this – southerly winds could lead to a higher tide that usual. High Tides just after midnight—Wealden Council, 9 November 2018

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 the road at Herbrand Walk, between Normans Bay and Cooden. Although tides will be lower tonight the wind is forecast to be stronger and we suspect Herbrand Walk may flood again up to two hours either side of midnight tonight 09/11/2018. Impacts are not expected anywhere else along the Pevensey sea front.

High tide at Eastbourne 00:17 on 10/11/2018 will be accompanied by Southerly Force 7 winds. This will increase tide table values by 0.20m (surge) giving a forecast tide level of 7.50 metres Chart Datum (3.86 mAOD) at Eastbourne.

Tides remain high into the weekend although we do not expect any further impacts. We will continue to monitor tide levels and forecasts and will update our messages as necessary. Please plan your driving routes to avoid driving through flood water. This message will be updated by 11:00 on 10/11/2018.
