The tidal Deben estuary

Warning no longer in force

Water levels are now returning to normal. The forecast is for surge conditions to subside over the next 24 hours, with no further risk from tides expected. There may still be some areas where flood water is present until it can naturally drain away. Continue to take care on coastal roads and footpaths, and don't put yourself in unnecessary danger. We will continue to monitor levels closely.
