Flood Alert issued on 31 Mar 2018 09:06
River Itchen
Half a month’s rain has fallen in the last week with 40mm recorded in Southampton. After a wet day yesterday, high flows are affecting the Lower River Itchen. This means that much lower tides than normal will cause flood impacts at each high tide period. At Southampton, high tide is forecast at 11:39 and the tide level is reasonably high at 4.88 mCD or 2.14 mAOD. For an hour either side of high tide, the river may come out of bank affecting the access road and car parking areas near the White Swan Pub and car garage at Mansbridge. Impacts should be minor and no property flooding is expected. Defence gates around the pub should be closed as a precautionary measure. The temporary flood barrier should be installed to help protect car parking areas. We continue to monitor levels. This Flood Alert will be updated by 18:00 on 31/03/2018
