Thanks re support for High Tides 12/13 Jan 2017

Thanks to all group members that were able or on standby, to assist with the operations relating to the recent high tides.

In the end the Environment Agencies forecasting bought the initial flood warnings down to flood alerts on both the Fri AM and Fri PM tides.  This did not trigger the planned precautionary evacuation in the Hunstanton, Heacham & Snettisham areas.

The forecasting was absolutely spot on for this part of our coast and although damaged in parts, the defences stopped serious flooding issues.  Further tides in this current series of tides are not expected to cause a problem.
