North Cornwall Coast from The Rumps to Hartland Point excluding Bude

Flood Alert

Flooding is possible for ALL high tides from Wednesday morning to Friday evening inclusive. Times of high water will vary along the coast. This sequence of Flood Alerts has been issued due to exceptionally high Spring Tides combined with large waves. The largest waves are expected on Friday. Tides may be marginally higher than predicted due to local weather conditions. Wave impacts are possible at exposed coastal locations including Port Isaac, Boscastle and Bude area. Winds are generally expected from a Southerly direction and to remain below Force 6. People are advised to stay away from risk 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.
