A large tidal surge is expected to affect the foreshore as a result of high spring tides and strong winds. Tides will be at their highest between 10:00 and 14:00 today 20th February. Flooding to properties/roads and farmland is possible at these times, however conditions may apply two to four hours either side of the high tide. Areas which may be affected are low lying land, roads and coastal paths at Mossband Hall, Eden estuary, Burgh Marsh, Port Carlisle, Bowness-on-Solway, Wampool estuary, Waver estuary, Skinburness Marsh, Skinburness and Silloth. We are monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are checking defences and closing flood gates. Be careful along beaches, promenades, coastal footpaths and roads as large waves and sea spray could be dangerous. This message will be updated later today 20th February or as the situation changes.
