Storm Eunice: 18 February 2022 

Advice for Isle of Wight residents 

Local elected councillors and councils are a vital line of communication in times of crisis, and may be approached for help or advice. Here is some up-to-date information that you can pass on to people in your local area during the current storm weather. 

Flood warning 

The Environment Agency has now issued a flood warning for the high tide on Friday lunchtime. Flooding is expected for coastal areas at Cowes and East Cowes, and tidal areas of Newport.  

Island Roads has ensured that the strategic sandbag locations are stocked and accessible which are Well Road, East Cowes; Simeon Street Rec, Ryde; and St Mary’s car park, Cowes.  

Additional sandbag drops are being made at Yarmouth (River Road Car park) and Newport Quay (next to County Hall Car park). 

In the event of flooding, call Floodline on 0345 988 1188 or follow @EnvAgency on Twitter for the latest flood updates.
