Rough Seas And High Tides Expected On Yorkshire Coast

Coastguard teams on the Yorkshire Coast are reminding people to be careful in the weather this week.

Rough seas and high tides are expected over the next few days.

The Coastguard said:

"This will make promenades, harbours and lower coastal paths extremely dangerous due to the powerful northerly wave action and flying debris."

The high water times are as follows:

Whitby

Thursday 28th November - 4.54pm

Friday 29th November - 05.21am and 7.35pm

Scarborough

Thursday 28th November - 5.22pm

Friday 29th November - 5.34pm and 5.49pm

The Coastguard added:

"Some road/footpath closures may be required several hours either side of high water, if this is the case do not drive or walk past the closure signs, this is for your own safety.

If you see someone if difficultly on the coast or putting themselves in a dangerous position due to the conditions, please dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard."

There is also a flood alert for the River Esk.

The Environment Agency said: 

"This flood alert remains in force as levels on the lower River Esk, particularly around Briggswath and Lealhome, are rising as a result of recent rainfall.

Further rain is forecast through Thursday. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is possible.

Please avoid using low lying land and riverside footpaths near local watercourses and avoid driving through any floodwater."
