Kingsbridge Town Council is warning residents and businesses that there could be potential tidal flooding for an hour-and-a-half tomorrow morning.

The town council warned of potential tidal flooding between 7am and 8.30am on Tuesday, 7 December.

A Met Office Yellow Warning has been received for strong winds across the whole of the UK, and in the South Hams and Kingsbridge, experience tells us that, combined with a high tide tomorrow morning, could easily give rise to potential tidal flooding around 7am to 8.30am. 

A spokesperson for the town council said: "There is the potential for a tidal surge forcing water up through storm drains to flood: Bridge Street, Mill Street, Devon Square, Prince of Wales Road and Ilbert Road in the vicinity of the bus station.

"Residents and businesses are advised to move valuables and stock to upper floors. The Town Council has a stockpile of sandbags for community use if you require them; please telephone 01548 853296 or 01548 857073 or drop into the Council Offices at Quay House.

"Experience has taught us that it’s always wise to be prepared."

The Council is fully a where that Residents & Business in Kingsbridge Town Centre get repeated flooding but clearly Sand-bags and warnings is not good enough when this situation continues and nothing done to prevent flooding in Kingsbridge in first place for people trying to live in the area and run a business. It's not just stock that gets damaged but property too. People affect will in end just shut shop and move away and this be shocking for the area. You are a Council accepting Tax payers money to work on the behalf of the community so get a grip and develop better flood prevention.
