More flood alerts issued for Sussex - these are the areas where homes are 'at risk'
More flood alerts have been issued after earlier warnings that coastal properties were at risk from water damage.
Alerts were issued in the early hours of the morning across Sussex including near the River Ouse, Cuckmere River and in Pevensey.
The warnings come after Environment Agency officials said that flooding was “expected” in seafront areas of Seaford. The town as well as inland areas of Seaford may also be affected.
In an update issued at around 4am on Friday, March 24, an Environment Agency spokesman said: “Flooding is possible in this area [around the Upper Ouse and Cuckmere River].
“Monitor local water levels and weather conditions. Avoid using low lying footpaths or entering areas prone to flooding. Start acting on your flood plan if you have one.”
