IW Council are aware that the majority of impacts from the high tide have been experienced in Cowes and East Cowes. Council Environment Officers are undertaking visits in these areas to identify affected residents and businesses to signpost flood recovery advice with leaflets

  • Once IWC understand the extent of the impacts, the council’s silver group will be able to ensure that service areas can target advice and support more appropriately where needed over and above advice already available on our website.
  • While the weather and flood warnings have been cancelled, a flood alert is in place for lunch time high tide today at 12noon.
  • Sandbags will be replenished at Cowes, East Cowes and Ryde.
  • Unsettled weather continues with rain showers and strong Westerly Force 6 winds.
