A Flood Alert has been issued by the Environment Agency.

Flood Alert in force: The tidal River Waveney from Ellingham to Breydon Water.

Flooding is possible for: The tidal River Waveney from Ellingham to Breydon Water.    

Be prepared.

This message has been issued because of the forecast for high tides at Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth. High levels in the Broads may last for a few days until the high tides have passed. We are not currently expecting the situation to escalate. High water is due at Great Yarmouth at 07:35 am, on 03/10/2017. The detailed forecast for those that use it is for a peak level of 1.54mAODN, which is 0.67m above tide tables. The wind forecast is Force 6, West North Westerly (mAODN means height above average sea level, for more info refer to local tide tables). Levels can take several hours to peak in the Broads in response to incoming tidal waters. Remain vigilant. We are closely monitoring the situation. High Water is expected at Burgh Castle at 8:15am and Beccles Quay at 11:15am.
