Flood Warning For Riverside Properties On The Yare

Recommended Posts

Dear All 

Urgent Boating News - Flood Warning for Riverside Properties Along the Tidal River Yare 

A Flood Warning has been issued by the Environment Agency. 

Flooding is expected for riverside properties along the tidal River Yare including Cantley, Brundall and Reedham.     

This message has been issued because we are expecting high water levels at Brundall from 14:00 on Friday 8 December 2017 due to the natural tide locking caused by high waters at Great Yarmouth, which is restricting the normal drainage out to sea of the Broads system at low tide.  High levels in the Broads may last for a few days until the high tides have passed. The forecast indicates a series of risk tides for today and tomorrow.   Levels can take several hours to peak in the Broads in response to incoming tidal waters so please remain vigilant. 

Areas most at risk are in Reedham, Cantley and Brundall. Roads affected include Ferry Road in Reedham, the A47 and the railway line between Reedham and Brundall. The Environment Agency are closely monitoring the situation. 

Kind Regards 

Laura Milner

It's high in Potter too. Just about topping the moorings. We've gone in Herby Woods yard.

I was walking at Neatishead this morning and went out on the boardwalk. It appeared Pleasure Island was completely under water marked only by a circle of green shallow water bouys.

Pictures on FB show Reedham ferry earlier not operational and the New Inn at Horning the concrete under water. NN got stuck for awhile at Woods due to the fish Barrier being lifted!
