North Cornwall Coast from The Rumps to Hartland Point excluding Bude

Flood alert

Flooding is possible around high tide this evening, Saturday 19th September. High water at Bude is at 19:56 this evening. Times of high water vary along the coast. High spring tides, which peak today, along with force 5 north easterly winds and associated waves are forecast. This can result in flooding of quay edges, low lying car parks and roads. There is particular emphasis on the low lying coastal areas of Port Quinn, Port Isaac, Port Gaverne, Boscastle and Crooklets Beach. Install flood protection products, such as flood barriers and air brick covers. People are advised to stay away from risk areas and take care next to the coast. We will monitor the situation and update this message if the situation changes. Tidal levels are lower tomorrow and we currently expect no Flood Alerts will be required for tides on Sunday.
