Severe Storm System & Arctic Blast Thursday 5th Onwards

Recommended Posts

Emotions are very mixed in here tonight, as are some of the posts, please think before you post as this is a serious developing situation fo many folk across Europe. Rather them than me, as like most of us I like extreme weather but I also treasure my life. Posted Image

 

Where is this link from? If that it is accurate, well need I say any more really.

We shall have to start looking toward the Netherlands and Northern Germany and Denmark soon. Does anyone have any links for their weather forums or anything? If I lived in either the British 'Holland' or the real Holland, I'd be scared to death now. I pray they all stay safe :-(

Reports that the River Trent is overtopping the defences at Gunness and Keadby.

Severe flooding as far south as Hayling Island tonight, my brothers house inevitably teetering on the edge of anything that breaches the defenses although in recent months the Havant council has been reinstating the wave-breaking barriers designed to take away the extra energy out from the waves.

Worth remembering that the 1953 events was responsible for the Humber, Thames and massive Dutch flood barrier systems that exist today.

The tidal gauge at Lowestoft is about 2m above normal ..... 3 hours before high tide.

Is that correct? Thats unbelieveable.

At least the storm itself is getting a move on but the next few hours will dictate what to make of the aftermath across the UK and many other parts of Europe.

Apparently Hull's defences have held out past high tide with about 10-20cms to spare

Some amazing pics on there. Very close to overspilling. Had the wind kept up i dont think they'd have held.

I live in West Runton between Sheringham and Cromer. We are fairly high but my friends a few miles down the coast are expected to flood soon.

Regards Mike

Looks like Cromer might have peaked 6.5m off the scale at Lowesoft.

Wow that is a fairly close call.... Good job those systems were installed and the wind has died down.

Yep, 1955 was high tide for Cromer, so it SHOULD slowly decrease now. Even still, there can be a sight delay with storm surges.
