3:27pm Wednesday 17th October 2012 in News
A WARNING has been issued that more flooding could be on the way in the next few hours.
The Environment Agency is urging people to remain vigilant and alert for possible tidal flooding in parts of Dorset between 6pm and 8pm today.
Sixteen flood warnings and 18 flood alerts have been issued for Devon, Cornwall and Dorset, where the high tides and storm surges could also see flooding of coastal areas.
Environment Agency spokesman David Bunt said: “Now is a good time for anyone who lives in an area vulnerable to flooding to think about the precautions they can take to protect their properties.
“People should be aware that there could be a lot of water in coastal areas, so avoid trying to drive or walk through any flood water and be sensible when out and about, particularly around the coast.
“With the high spring tides, and anticipated wind surges, our teams are working hard to ensure we are prepared and to make sure the public are aware of the risk."
