Flood Warning issued on 9 Feb 2020 12:32
Monday morning's tide at 11:34 and 13:39 on 10/02/2020 is higher than normal due to Storm Ciara, which brings strong South Westerly Force 7 winds. The weather increases tide table values by 0.58 m. The total forecast tide is 5.38 metres Chart Datum (2.64 mAOD) at Southampton. For 1.5 hours either side of high water, levels in the lower River Itchen will rise as the incoming tide prevents water flowing out to sea. The access road near the pub will flood. Without a barrier installed, it will flood the pub car park and could flood the car garage. Footpath flooding is expected in Riverside Park. Levels will be very high around the Activity Centre. At 23:57 on 10/02/2020 the tide is lower, but minor impacts may still occur. We may issue further advice. We continue to monitor the forecast. At Mansbridge, please consider installing the temporary flood barrier and closing defence gates at the pub 1 hour before high tide. We will update this message by 16:00 on 10/02/2020.
