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