Storm Update

Severe weather provision for homeless community in Arun District

News bulletin With understandable local concern about current water levels and a storm due this weekend we can confirm that we are working closely with the Environment Agency, who are the lead authority, to monitor and assess the situation on an ongoing basis. The tides are receding in height and whilst Storm Dennis is forecast to come ashore over the next few days, the spring tides are dropping and forecasts show that even though we are expecting it to be wet and windy, the timing of the tides, wind, swell and rain should not coincide to make the situation worse. As the storm passes, conditions are set to improve.

The Council remains on alert to assist the emergency services should circumstances require and will continue to monitor tide and weather forecasts.
