Suffolk and Norfolk issued tidal surge flood warnings over Christmas

22 December 2023

looding could strike Norfolk and Suffolk over the Christmas period, with warnings and alerts issued over a tidal surge.

The Environment Agency said on Thursday that there is the potential for flooding in the Norfolk Broads.

Officers are now monitoring tide locking - where raised sea levels stop rivers from draining out to the sea, which can cause flooding - across the river network.

The surge, caused by a low-pressure system and strong winds in the North Sea, is expected to bring high tides over the Christmas period.

Marcus Sibley, from the local area leadership team at the Environment Agency, said: "Please remember to take extreme care on coastal paths and promenades.

"We advise people to stay away from swollen rivers and exposed coasts and urge people not to drive through flood water as just 30cm of flowing water is enough to move your car."

In a statement, the Environment Agency predicted "some smaller impacts along the East Norfolk and Suffolk coast including at Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft in the next few days".
