Tidal areas of Newhaven, including Newhaven Marina, Wes Quay, Riverside North, Denton Island and the east bank are the subject of a flood alert tonight (Thursday December 5).
The Enviroment Agency issued the alert at 4.15pm this afternoon with high tide at 12.56am.
They said: “The overnight high tide levels coupled with a storm surge coming down the North Sea, means that there could be localised disruption particularly around the Marina area south of the A259.
“There is a likelihood that roads adjacent to the River could be inundated, and that some localised flooding could affect waterside properties.”
