    I was wondering that too, especially given what can happen in hurricanes. I suspect it'll be more like a very rapidly rising tide.

    Cheers, Steve. I'm wondering if it'll be worth a wander down to the river side later. I suppose potential loss of life and damage to property will be down on the scale of news worthiness on news channels now.

    Yes, I concur with other thoughts re: Nelson Mandela and if you wish to attribute SS has started a dedicated thread to the great man.

    Difficult call for news channels to be fair. Which ever story they favour they'll be criticized. But I do think the 10pm news should have announced it, gone to the floods then headed back to the Mandela story once they'd got the warning message out.

    The tide times website shows a high tide tonight for Southend of 6m, and then tomorrow afternoons high tide is 6.2m

     

    How high are the sea walls in southend? I have a feeling there may be some water on the road, Google's altitude maps show parts of the seafront well below 6m

    Glad they have their priorities right. (sarc)

     

    They could save peoples lives reporting on where the waters are rising.

    They could do both, they are both important in my opinion. But dropping the flooding completely I don't agree with.

    Relative to what exactly? I was under the impression the height of a high tide was measured from the height of the previous low tide. I didn't think it had any relationship to land based structures or altitude.

     

    I may be wrong ....................... HELP

    I agree with this. I think they've reported all they are doing now, when it looked like he was at death's door earlier this year.

     

    I feel a bit sick for saying this, as I've always thought he was a great man - I went to the first Nelson Mandela concert at Wembley etc. I'd hate for someone living now, to not hear the surge news and suffer for it though.

    That's a very good question! haha

     

    I don't actually know how to answer that one, the site states a high tide of 6.2m, I just wanted to know how high that is in relation to the sea walls..

    I agree  the report should go to a special at the end, people are at grave risk now.I have slightly mixed feelings as I lived and worked out there during the rise of the ANC and on my mine they killed many young white Afrikan national service lads,they stole dynamite and rioted,burning down their own accomodation.He was a great man but there was a lot of bad things done in his name.

    Well I just got banned from the DS forum for stating the exact same thing, reporting on the events that affect the lives of tens of thousands SHOULD take more priority than the death of one man thousands of miles away. The mind just boggles sometimes with the BBC.

     

    anyway moving on..

    Some bright spark will know. What I do know is the tide at Southend is already 1 metre from it's expected high and running an hour ahead and it's still got 3 hours to go!
