Flooding to coastal footpaths, roads and properties is possible at these times, however conditions may apply two to four hours either side of the high tide.

We are closely monitoring the situation and affected areas. Please avoid using risk areas and take care near coastal footpaths and promenades as large waves and spray are likely. Do not drive through flood water or large waves. This message will be updated tomorrow morning, 15/01/2020, or as the situation changes.

Flood Warning issued on 7 Dec 2017 15:46
North Sea
This flood warning has been issued due to the risk of wave overtopping affecting the seafront from at inner Victoria Harbour and Croft-on-Heugh Hartlepool. The area is likely to be affected between 17:00 and 19:00 on Thursday 7-12-17. We currently do not expect significant property impacts as wave overtopping is only expected if the wind becomes South-Easterly. Extreme care should be taken close to exposed coastal locations due to the risk of crashing waves. We do not envisage similar impacts on Friday.
