Flood Alert Info - The tidal River Waveney from Ellingham to Breydon Water

Flood Alert Currently in Force

Flood Alert issued on 26 Sep 2020 17:26
Waveney
This message has been issued because some minor flooding to riverside roads and footpaths is expected today, Saturday 26th and overnight into Sunday 27th September. Water levels are expected to continue to stay high for several days following Friday's heavy rain. This is due to the natural tide locking effect of high tidal waters moving up the rivers from Great Yarmouth that restricts the normal drainage out to sea of the Broads river system at low tide. We expect to see high water levels at Beccles Quay. We are not currently expecting the situation to escalate, or to issue any further warning messages for this area at this time but are closely monitoring the combined risk from yesterday's rainfall and a tide-locking scenario. Take care on waterside roads and footpaths and don't put yourself in unnecessary danger. We are monitoring the situation and will update this message as necessary, and no later than 10am on Sunday 27th September.
