Flood Forecast Statement 01/02/2014

Natural Resources Wales is urging people near the Wales coast to remain vigilant as strong winds are forecast to coincide with Saturday evening’s high tide.

The warning comes even though the impacts from this morning’s high tide were less severe than forecast.

Flood warnings for the whole of the Wales coast will remain in place throughout Saturday.

The strong south westerly winds are forecast to affect Wales throughout this afternoon and evening and there is a risk they will combine with the high tide on Saturday evening and could cause flooding, particularly in the Newport area.

There is also the risk of bigger waves and spray than this morning hitting western coastlines such as at Aberystwyth.

People are strongly advised to stay clear of promenades and sea fronts as they could be swept away by large waves or hit by debris.

Natural Resources Wales’ staff are continuing to check coastal and river defences are in good working order, clearing debris and working closely with local authorities, police and other partners to help ensure communities are prepared for any potential flooding.

Flood alerts and flood warnings are updated on the Natural Resources Wales website every 15 minutes and are available to view at www.naturalresourceswales.gov.uk/alerts

Information and updates are also available by calling Floodline on 0845 988 1188.
