The Environment Agency has issued a statement about the possibility of tidal surges in the region over the next few days:
Statement from the Environment Agency
â€œThe Met Office is forecasting that a low pressure system will move south-east into the North Sea during Wednesday and Thursday. As this low pressure system coincides with a period of high spring tides this may lead to spray and large waves coming over promenades. The weather system brings a risk of localised coastal flooding for communities along Â parts of the east and south-east coasts of England on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning.
The Environment Agency continues to monitor the situation closely, working alongside the Met Office and local authorities. Environment Agency teams are out on the ground checking flood defences, assessing weather conditions and monitoring sea levels. We will issue flood warnings to affected communities if required.
We urge people to take care near coastal paths and promenades, and not to drive through flood water.
People should check their flood risk and keep up to date with the latest situation at https://www.gov.uk/check-if-youre-at-risk-of-flooding or follow @EnvAgency and #floodaware on Twitter for the latest flood updates.â€
