Flood Alert issued on 7 Dec 2017 15:36
River Tyne
This alert is issued for the high tide at the Tyne Estuary. The North East is currently experiencing relatively high tides and for the Thursday evening high tide we will experience an approximate 0.7m surge due to the Storm Caroline low pressure system. Tyne Estuary will be higher than normal between 17:00 and 20:00 on Thursday 7/12/17. We do not envisage the need to issue any flood warnings but due to the unpredictability of the serge we are erecting the temporary barriers at Newcastle Quayside. We will continue to monitor the situation and reissue this Alert for any subsequent tides if required. Subsequent tides on Friday 08/12 and into the weekend are likely to pose less risk.
