Flood Alert Issued For Isle Of Wight

The Environment Agency has issued a flood warning for the Isle of Wight.

Saturday evening's tide at 10.30pm was higher than normal due to unsettled weather with strong South Westerly Force 5 winds.

The total forecast tide is 5.01 metres Chart Datum (2.27 mAOD) at Cowes.

For 1 hour either side of high water, very minor impact flooding will affect some sea front roads, esplanades and car parks across the island.

Water will be high up slipways in Cowes, affecting Medina Road and the floating bridge.

In East Cowes, sea water forced up through drains may cause very minor impacts to the road at Albany Road.

Sunday morning tide is forecast at 4.84 metres Chart Datum (2.1 mAOD). Subsequent tide levels will be higher than tonight.

It is unlikely that it will cause flooding to property.

At Medina Road, near the Floating Bridge, the tide may rise to be only 0.1m below the top of front door steps.

As a precautionary measure, and if you have it, it is recommended that flood protection is installed at Medina Road an hour before high tide.
