    Bridge closure 2147:

    Oulton Broad road bridge is to be closed shortly, Waveney District Council says.

    It says water levels are now too high for cars to cross safely.

    Revised Suffolk warning 2139:

    The Suffolk Resilience Forum says it expects the tidal surge to hit the Suffolk coastline "up to an hour earlier than predicted - and may be slightly higher".

    It said the next high tide at Lowestoft was expected at about 23:00.

    A spokesperson said the tidal surge had hit parts of Norfolk an hour early, and "in some cases has been 200-300mm higher than estimated".

     

    Webcam at Oulten seems to be out but there's a picture here from about 20 minutes ago.

  2. Thanks for the link, can never have too many webcams when it is stormy. Selsey sticks out into the Channel further than Bognor so may catch the weather more, depends which direction the wind comes from. Nice to have a cam facing east and one west too!

    One of my daughters is acting reception manager at Bunn Leisure. I'll be phoning her on Monday to make sure all is ok. As you live down that way I'm sure you can appreciate that even on a very windy day the weather can cause havoc down there.

  3. Southernman has described the Selsey tornado to me, he was living there.

     

     

    Weird it was. I was sitting on the edge of my bed at about 11.50 pm. I said to my other half about the patter of hailstones on the window. All of a sudden they were the size of marbles and bigger so I moved back away from the window. My OH had already ducked under the covers ! Then there was this roaring noise and it felt like the wall and windows were going to be sucked out then it seemed like they were pushed the opposite way. The windows didn't break, thank goodness, but the walls had cracked on some room corners and the cracks were big enough to get your fingers in. From floor to ceiling. Some are still able to be seen.
