    Hi Jo thanks for that update - can you tell me what is expected for Northern England  over the next few hrs or so?  When you say northern England do you expect the wind to intensify somehwhat here?

    The high tides run from around lunchtime in Kent to 3pm Wash and late afternoon in Northumberland.

    Crunch time will be the worst winds and pressure late lunchtime.

     

    The following areas have severe flood warnings:
     
    Blakeney - highest water expected at 8pm
     
    Wells - highest water expected at 8pm
     
    Salthouse - highest water expected at 8pm

    Anyone living along the seafront or tidal rivers in these areas are being asked to be prepared to leave.  No one's being asked to evacuate their homes yet but emergency services will coordinate any evacuations.  So for now, get ready but you don't need to leave until you are asked to.

    Very sorry to hear of the first fatality from today's storm. hopefully the last report of such thing but it won't be for a few hours until we realise the true impact of the windstorm. Unfortunately seroius injury or worse is Inevitable during severe gale events.

    Perhaps he ought to consider a law making it illegal to take high sided vehicles out in weather like this??
