Flood warning in place for Sunderland

High waves

4:40pm 7th December 2017
(Updated 7:19pm 7th December 2017)

As Storm Caroline prepares to hit the UK, a Flood Warning has been issued by the Environment Agency. 

There is one now in force for Roker in Sunderland. 

Flooding is expected at properties including the Amusement Arcades and Grannie Annies.   

The agency say that immediate action is required. 

The North East is currently experiencing relatively high tides and for the Thursday evening high tide we will experience an approximate small surge due to the storm's low pressure system.

This flood warning has been issued due to the risk of waves affecting the seafront and coastal businesses at Roker.

The area is likely to be affected between 5pm and 7pm this evening.

Extreme care should be taken close to exposed coastal locations due to the risk of crashing waves.

UPDATE: 18:01

An alert has also been issued stretching along the North Sea coast from St Mary's Lighthouse to North Hartlepool.

The North East is currently experiencing relatively high tides and for the Thursday evening high tide we will experience an approximate surge due to the Storm Caroline.

Key locations that are likely to be impacted include the lifeboat station and marine lab at Cullercoats, Seaburn Lower Promenade, Hendon Promenade and Seaham Harbour and docks.

This is primarily due to wave overtopping and the warning is in place until 8pm tonight.
