    Areas affected: North Sea coast at Hornsea

    ACTIVE

    Started at: 16:32 BST on Sat 19 September

    Flooding is expected - immediate action required

    This Flood Warning has been issued due to high astronomic tides causing overtopping waves and spray in Hornsea between 06:30 and 08:00 on Sunday 20/09/20. The areas most likely to be affected are Marine Drive and South Promenade in Hornsea. Please take care and be aware of the risk of waves crashing into coastal frontages, avoid low level footpaths along the promenade during this time.
