Flood Warning issued on 2 Jan 2018 14:42
North Cornwall Coast
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 Padstow is at 05:52 tomorrow morning. Strong Force 8 Westerly winds are forecast. 4m Offshore wave heights are forecast this evening, increasing to around 10m overnight.
This may cause wave overtopping of sea defences and sea spray in exposed coastal areas leading to localised flooding to properties and standing water on coastal roads. Locations particularly at risk include Perranporth, Newquay Harbour and Towan Beach.
People are advised to stay away from 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 due to remain unsettled
