Forecast for High tides in Cumbria and river level update

Alert message sent 04/11/2021 16:13:00

Information sent on behalf of The Environment Agency


The Cumbrian Coastline will experience the highest astronomical spring tides of the year starting tomorrow and continuing until Monday.  The Environment Agency will be issuing Flood Alerts for the Coastline which will be in place over the weekend with a number of Flood Warnings possible. Likely impacts will be for the potential for flooding of some low lying homes, coastal roads and footpaths.

Following recent heavy rainfall, lakes, rivers and minor watercourses have been affected with a number of Flood Alerts and Flood Warnings being issued around the County.  With recent dry weather, many of the rivers and lakes have receded and currently only two Flood Alerts remain in place.  These are due to high lake levels at Windermere and Derwent Water.


Be flood ready.
It is important that you are prepared for flooding and we encourage you to take 3 simple steps:-
1. Sign up to Flood Warning Service to receive free flood warnings

2. Know what to do when a flood warning is issued.  We encourage you have a personal flood plan for you and your family

3. Keep an eye on the situation.  You can view at 5 day weather forecast and monitor river levels online at https://flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/ and www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/

Further information is available on our website www.gov.uk/flood or by ringing Floodline on 0345 988 1188.  Advice and information on other sources of flooding can be found at www.thefloodhub.co.uk
