Flood alert issued for Ramsgate

Flood alert

A flood alert for tomorrow has been issued for coastal areas including Ramsgate.

The alert, from the government’s flood information service, says: “This Flood Alert has been issued as large and powerful waves are expected to affect the foreshore.

“Flooding is expected two hours either side of high tide, between 9:45am and 1:45pm (February 10).

“Flooding is forecast to affect locations near the coast throughout this area, with low lying land expected to be most affected, particularly around Kingsdown, Deal, Pegwell Bay and Ramsgate.

“The unsettled weather with strong winds and possible rain is forecast to continue and the next tides could also affect locations near the coast. Please be careful in areas along beaches, promenades, coastal footpaths during the period of concern.”

  1. Rebecca I think you are getting TDC mixed up with this guy. The King of High Tides
    Canute was 40 when he died in 1035. He was also known as Cnut the Great, King of England, Denmark, Norway and parts of Sweden. By the time of the Norman Conquest in 1066 his story was quickly becoming lost to time but his relationship with the tide lingers on.

  2. Whats it got to do with bin collections..im a community carer still have to attend to people who need care

  3. The 4.31 comment is a reply to Mr/Ms Box, not to Tony. Wikipedia’s where I looked to confirm the facts about Cnut.
