Severe weather update

Fareham Borough Council is advising residents to be prepared for severe weather throughout the rest of the week and into the weekend.  The following information comes from the Met Office:

 

Strong winds are expected and high tides tomorrow around high water (11.15 – 12.30pm) which could result in property / road flooding in some coastal areas.  A combination of high tides, strong winds and large waves brings a medium coastal flood risk for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.  There is still also a low coastal flood risk in these parts on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

 

An amber weather warning has been issued for flooding in Wallington and coastal areas with a spring tide also expected tomorrow.  There will be high winds of gale force 8 and 9 overnight.  These warnings are in place for tonight, Friday and into Saturday with heavy rain continuing on Sunday.

Flood warnings can be found on the Environment Agency website www.environment-agency.gov.uk/homeandleisure/floods External Hyperlink

Tune in to BBC Radio Solent and other local radio stations for traffic reports.
