UK December 5th 2013 Severe weather Storm

As RAYNET celebrated it's 60 years of operation having been formed after the 1953 flooding of the East coast of England, we hear today weather warning of high winds, high tides and the warnings of severe weather flooding of the same East coast of England. 

The Environment Agency today has issued warnings of severe flooding with danger to life and property and has issued evacuation warnings in a number of east coast areas.

Yes, we are keeping a very careful eye on the situation - news reports indicate this could be prolonged, with tides tonight, tomorrow morning and tomorrow evening to be aware of.

SITREP, timed at 1545hrs:

Some of the RAYNET groups in Norfolk, Suffolk & Essex have been put on standby to assist with any response necessary to the flooding that may occur during the high tide period this evening. 

Specific requests for support have been received from the Norfolk and Suffolk 4x4 group and the appropriate local RAYNET groups have been informed. The highest period of risk starts early evening and continues until the early hours.

Please endeavour to keep the normal RAYNET frequencies clear of any non-emergency related traffic as well as 145.525MHz.

Medway RAYNET are also on standby.

Boston, Lincs is preparing for a possible evacuation.
