Coastal flooding reported in Cork, Ireland

SEV initiated in response to reports of coastal flooding in Cork, Ireland, following heavy rainfall, combined with high Spring tides.

Flooding associated with the high tides was also reported in many coastal towns outside Cork, not associated with rivers, indicating that a general temporary increase in coastal sea levels was underway. There has been no official confirmation whether a storm surge element was involved, though the pool of evidence of the nature of the flooding surrounding the extra-tropical cyclonic system indicates further investigation would be encouraged, and data collected.

For this reason, the eSurge team have initiated an SEV.
