High Tide at Parkgate and Little Neston - January 2014

Published: 3rd January 2014 13:53

Following warnings of a high tide being met by poor weather, Council officials were on stand-by to deal with potential flooding in the area.

It was predicted to be the the highest tide in 16 years, threatening to bring flooding to Chester and rural areas along the Dee.

The Parade at Parkgate was closed to traffic as a precaution and sandbags were delivered to homes thought to be at risk.

Today's high tide at Chester Weir peaked at 6.63m. On December 5, 2013, when the Dee breached its banks, the high tide peaked at 6.14m.

Whilst the water was high, it was not exacerbated by the severe weather conditions witnessed in December. It therefore had less negative effects, though some homes in Marshlands Road clearly needed the sandbags to hold the water at bay when it peaked at around 12.30pm.

Thank you to everyone who has sent in their photos and please see the foot of this article for a video from David Sejrup.

Can I say a big thank you to all those involved in the clean up after the storms and high tides.
As a regular dog walker along the new Greenway, I greatly appreciate the efforts of the farmers and landowners, and many others, who have worked hard to keep the paths as clear as possible.
I only managed to pick up a few carrier bags full of plastic, but hope every little helps.
I trust that the majority of the Greenway users (i.e. cyclists) are equally appreciative.
