Flood Warning issued on 2 Jan 2018 14:38
North Cornwall Coast, River Neet
Flooding is expected over high tide on Wednesday morning (3rd January). Large waves and strong winds combined with high tides mean conditions will be hazardous in exposed locations. The time of high tide at Bude is 06:09 tomorrow morning. Strong Force 8 Westerly winds are forecast. 4m Offshore wave heights are forecast and will increase to around 10m overnight. Large waves and spray are likely so take care near coastal paths and promenades. This may cause localised standing water on roads around Bencoolen Road and Public Car Park, The Strand, The Crescent, Bude Bowling Club and Neetside Surgery. People are advised to avoid risk areas and take care near the coast. Keep up to date with weather and tide conditions on local radio. EA staff are checking flood defences are in working order and are monitoring conditions. Conditions are expected to remain unsettled.
