More flooding expected around the Island today


It looks like there will be more flooding misery for some Island residents and businesses today.


The spring tide at 12.18pm is expected to be higher than the one on January 3, which caused so many problems up and down the east coast.

A red warning has been issued by the Met Office.

The Water and Sewerage Authority has produced a set of maps showing areas in towns and villages around the Island where flooding is forecast.


It can be viewed via the government website http://www.gov.im/water/

Chris Blatcher runs Ramsey Warehouse in the town, and their basement was flooded in January.  He says they're only just recovering, so today is particularly daunting:
