The tidal River Waveney from Ellingham to Breydon Water

Flood alert

This message has been issued because some minor flooding to riverside roads and footpaths is likely this afternoon and overnight tonight, into tomorrow morning. High water levels may last for a few days, until the high tides at Great Yarmouth have passed. This is due to a natural tide-locking effect. High tidal water moving up the rivers from Great Yarmouth, is currently restricting the normal drainage out to sea at low tide, of the Broads river system. We expect to see high water levels at Beccles Quay. Be ready to take action to protect your property if flooding is expected. We are monitoring the situation and not expecting the situation to escalate. We will update this message by 10am tomorrow, Friday 3 December.
