Another Storm Surge? Keep your eye on the forecasts!

There are warnings emerging of a storm surge along the East Coast of England for this Friday (13th January 2017). At the time of writing these are a low risk warning, but the situation can change so keep your eyes open for updated warnings from the MetOffice and Environment Agency, such as the Flood Information Service.

If you’ve read this blog before you will know that I have performed plenty of computer model simulations of the 2013 storm surge in the Humber Estuary. Thankfully, it does not look like this Friday’s surge will result in flooding, and not on the scale of 2013, but I thought I’d share a simulation of the latest model anyway.

There still, as ever, more work to do but it’s getting there.
