Storm Surge Caution Notice, Flood Precautions Cork City

Cork City Council has been advised by the Dept. of Communications, Marine & Natural Resources of the likelihood of a storm surge in Irish Waters later tonight (21 September 2006).

High Tide in Cork City is scheduled at 18.08 this evening, Thursday 21st September. We are not sure of the impact the predicted storm surge will have on the tide levels at that particular time.

However due to the adverse weather conditions prevailing at present, i.e. predicted Heavy Rainfall, High Winds, and Low Barometric Pressure, we would caution that there may be a likelihood of localised flooding occurring in the low lying areas of the City Centre, including Union Quay, Trinity Bridge, Anglesea Terrace, Rutland Street, Sawmill Street, Cotter Street and Stable Lane areas. Other areas, among others that may be affected include Kyrl’s Quay, Cornmarket Street junction.

Precautionary measures should therefore be taken to protect property.
