Mersey Estuary at Warrington

Flood Alert

The high tide is expected to be higher than usual along the Mersey Estuary as a result of high spring tides. Flooding of low lying land, roads and farmland is possible between 00:00am and 01:15am tonight and tomorrow, 19/02/19 and 20/02/19. We believe there is a possibility of flooding for low lying land in the following places: Fiddlers Ferry between 00:00am and 00:30am, Eastford Road between 00:15am and 00:45am, Arpley Bridge between 00:30am and 01:00am. It is possible that river levels may affect Arpley Road under the railway bridge. Flood alerts and or warnings may also be required for subsequent high tides. Be careful along beaches, promenades, coastal footpaths and roads as large waves and sea spray could be dangerous. This message will be updated tomorrow morning, 20/02/19, or as the situation changes.
