I noticed the national News talking about high tides and flooding in the South East today, but no mention of the North West.

I'm no weather expert but did a lot of observation of winds and tide heights when I kayaked round here, and the North Westerly wind and a 9.6M high tide at 11.20 this morning would make me believe we might get a bit.

We regularly get 10 metre tides, so I would think we'll be OK this time.

It is when you get a combination of a 10 metre tide, plus low pressure, plus the wind piling up water into Mersey/Dee corner of the Irish sea that problems arise

I don't know if you've been to Lincolnshire but coastalwise is very low and very flat and anything above the norm floods vast areas. I wouldn't dream of living anywhere like that but that probably explains why there's not all that much population over great areas. Our kid said it must be a crap place to live because there's nobody there, which made me laugh. They are a bit more vulnerable than elsewhere e.g. Yorkshire has cliffs along a lot of it. Just my opinion but having been there I can understand it.
