The Government Flood Information Service warns here about a high risk of flooding for Hullbridge riverside properties tomorrow:
There is a high risk of flooding due to a combination of extreme weather and high tides. The forecast high water is due at Clacton on Friday 13th January 2017 at 1:00pm. High water is due at Hullbridge around 1 hour later at 2:00pm. The predicted astronomical tide level is 2.05 m AODN. The forecast surge height is 1.53 m. The forecast tide level is 3.58 m AODN. The forecast wind direction is North West. The forecast wind strength is force 8. This warning is in force until 4:00pm on Friday 13th January 2017.

mAODN is a standard measure used across the UK for height above average sea level. It is different to Chart Datum. The Environment Agency is monitoring the situation closely, working alongside partners including the Met Office and local authorities.
