Hi All,

Just had a phonecall from the EA advising of a "Flood Watch" along with the following email:-

Wednesday 9 September 2009 at 08:15

A Flood Watch has been issued for the Tidal Rivers Bure, Ant and Thurne including Tidal Rivers Bure from Wroxham Bridge, Ant from Honing & Thurne from Hickling all to Breydon Water.  Flooding of low-lying land and roads is expected.  Be aware.  Be prepared.  Watch out!





The Environment Agency advises you to act now:

- Ring Floodline on 0845 988 1188 for up to date flooding information, quickdial code; 0342
- Tune in to weather and travel bulletins
- Keep a watch on the weather and water levels
- Tell your family, friends and neighbours
- Drive carefully - roads may be flooded
- Farmers - check livestock
- Check availability of torches and batteries
- Be aware of the possibility of further flooding
- Be aware - be prepared - watch out!
- Find more information at www.environment-agency.gov.uk/floodline

Reference M/S/PUB/FWA/054WATBT1

Above all - be careful.  The Environment Agency cannot be held responsible for any accidents, injuries, or losses, financial or otherwise, which occur as a result of this email.  Forecasts cannot be guaranteed.

Please do not reply to this email. If you would like more information about flooding or want to stop receiving these emails, please phone Floodline on 0845 988 1188.

Look like a North Sea surge as looking on the website the whole of North Norfolk down to Suffolk is affected.

John

Kind regards, John(Captain Joshie)& Jo, 'Rosie L'Ondine' L799.

Autumn Equinox? Suspect that that is the reason.

0.7 metre higher than predicted already at Lowestoft, and still rising sharply.

Just been to Brundall to make sure the Scout boats are tied down.

Water levels are currently approx a foot to 18 inches higher than normal.

yes, just been down to Langley Dyke, and with about 3 hours left before high water, it was already at the regular spring tide height.

The salt side at Oulton Broad is very high, but not incredibly so. So long as the wind doesn't get up and force more water into the system then I can't see it being a problem.

Just had a look at The Red House, water is lapping over the quay heading.

I think its around high water in Cantley at the moment so dont expect it to come up much more.

I did take some pics but the camera has deleted them!

Shame that cos there was one private boat and one hire craft came past creating immense wash.

Well,  having got my feet fairly wet getting onboard  this afternoon, I look a short trip up to the Surlingham Ferry for tea.  It was fairly damp up there as well (as was Coldham hall). Tonight's low water doesn't look to be very low, so it could well be up higher in the morning.
