Flood Alert For Swale And Coastal Areas

Flood Alert For Swale And Coastal Areas

This Flood Alert has been issued by the Environmant Agency due to the high tide expected to affect coastal and tidal locations this afternoon (Monday 21st February).

The Agency say that flooding is possible two hours either side of high tide, between 2pm and 6pm today, with strong winds and unsettled weather causing higher water levels than normal. Flooding will affect lower lying locations nearest the coast throughout this area, particularly around Faversham Creek, Conyer and low-lying parts of Seasalter.

The unsettled weather is likely to continue over the coming days, though tides are expected to begin reducing from this evening.

Please be careful in areas around the coast during this period of concern and avoid contact with flood waters present.

They say that they "will continue to monitor this situation, and have staff prepared to respond if needed".

For those who need it, the total water level for Sheerness is forecast to be 3.75m AOD at 15:45pm today (Monday, 21/02/2022). The wind will be a North Westerly Force 6.
