It has been reported to me this morning that the moorings at Tingdene Marina (Brundall) that all the ramp walkways to the floating pontoons are now operating uphill and there is flooding getting down to the Marina.

I’ve been posting updates today on the NBN Facebook Group but here is my videos edited into a single one for you HERE 

As I type, the tide is once more rising with high water in Brundall expected to peak around 2:00am. Hopefully it won’t be too awful when it does.

Dear all,


Flood alerts are again in place today Wednesday 9 January for the tidal River Waveney from Ellingham to Breydon Water (including Beccles Quay, Oulton Broad, Somerleyton, St Olaves, Haddiscoe and Belton) and tidal River Yare, from Thorpe St Andrew to Breydon Water (including Brundall, Cantley, Reedham and Burgh Castle).

High water levels may last for a few days until the effect of the high tides at Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft this week have passed. This is due to the natural tide locking effect of high tidal waters moving up the rivers yesterday from Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft that restricts the normal drainage out to sea of the Broads river system at low tide. The Environment Agency are not currently expecting the situation to escalate on either of the rivers.

For more information please visit the Flood Warning Information Service website: https://flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/warnings

Kind regards,
Tom
