This Flood Alert has been removed. The spring tides are reducing and when combined with river levels from the Stour the next high tide is not expected to result in flooding. There is no longer a threat of flooding, though standing water and debris may still remain. No further significant rainfall is forecast for the next few days. The next high tide at Grove Ferry is expected to reach 2.2 metres above Ordnance Datum at 5pm, 29/11/2022. We continue to monitor the situation. Our incident response staff are out on the ground checking and clearing any blockages and debris from rivers.
