Flood warnings along the coast

Flooding is expected over the high tide on Sunday morning. Red flood warnings are in force around Clovelly and Westward Ho!

Gale force 7 west south-westerly winds and offshore wave heights of around 3.1m are forecast to cause property flooding on Sunday morning.

Large waves and spray are likely so take care near coastal paths and promenades.

The following areas are affected Clovelly (Harbour Side), Westward Ho! (shingle ridge area), Watermouth Cove (holiday parks and Harbour area) and Combe Martin (Hotel and Cafe).

This may cause localised standing water on roads in these areas. Do not drive through flood water or waves.
