Cork County Council has confirmed that extensive tidal flooding has occurred along the coastline this morning. The storm surge coupled with spring tides have been the major contributory factors. A southerly wind direction and high wind speeds coinciding with high tides had the effect of increasing the tide significantly.
Locations which have been effected include: –
- Bantry (15 properties)
Cork County Council’s Fire Service and roads crews have attended a number of locations this morning and continue to assist as the tidal waters subside.
