North Cornwall Coast from The Rumps to Hartland Point excluding Bude

Flood Alert

Flooding is possible over all high tides from the evening high tide on Wednesday 8th April through to and including the morning high tide on Friday 10th April. High water at Ilfracombe on Wednesday evening is at 19:24. Times of high water will vary along the coast. Expect peak water levels to be up to 100mm higher than published. Tide levels over this period will be the joint second highest tides of the year. Generally calm conditions with slight winds and small waves are predicted, therefore, no risks associated with wave overtopping of exposed seafronts, quays and promenades are expected. The main areas of concern are flooding of low lying land and roads on the coast and along estuaries associated with high water levels. People are advised to stay away from flooded areas and take care next to the coast. Keep up to date with weather and tide conditions on local radio. We will continue to monitor the situation and issue updates as required.
