OK. You are under a flood warning at the moment, though you're far enough away from The Haven for impacts to be unlikely I would guess, still as a course of least regret, I would at the very least make sure that you're keeping a very close eye on the flood warnings on the EA website, and following the advice they give on there. This is a fluid situation, and flood warnings may be updated at any point. If the flood warning gets upgraded to a Severe Flood Warning, you should be contacted either by the automated flood warning line or by the Police.

im sure we will be kept informed if we should evac or not  ..

 

Specific details of areas likely to be evacuated or already being evacuated in East Anglia down to Essex are currently running in the SE/EA regional thread. There are a few of them so I won't add them here.

Topher, if you need to be evacuated, the Police or Boston Borough Council will come to your house and tell you, so don't worry about that. At the moment I think it's unlikely given where you are, but not impossible if things take a turn for the worse through the afternoon. I went to college in Boston, so I know where you are, you're a distance away from the Haven and South 40 foot drain, and on slightly higher ground, so you should be OK, but with the current situation still uncertain, keep following the flood warnings for Boston, and take sensible precautions, which it sounds like you are doing.

Have a flood warning out for my area (Greenhithe) but for tomorrow's high tides @ 02:15/14:45, thought the main risk was today by how things are sounding?

 

Further South means later times. The main storm surge could come on the back end of the low departing across Northern Europe/Southern Scandinavia and that coincides with a lot of very high tides to the East of the UK around midnight onwards.

Environment Agency's site seems to have imploded, although at least holding on for it to work I now know we're under a Flood warning!

OH's Grandparents are right on Clacton Seafront, getting ready to go inland if necessary.

High tide in Great Yarmouth due between 19:30 and 22:30

 

The Environment Agency are saying the high tides later today look set to be worse than those of 2007, and possibly worse than the devestating floods of 1953.

The police in great Yarmouth says it will be worst than 2008 storm surge. Pretty sure it was 2008.

I don't think there's much doubt that the tide heights tonight will be higher than 2007. We topped out at about 8.5 metres in 07, we could see 9.5 tonight.For those with a smartphone or tablet, and who are struggling to access the EA website, there's an app called flood alert that does the same job. If you add your postcode, your phone or tablet will alert you if a flood warning is issued or your flood risk changes. It's free as well. Edited by Just Before Dawn
