Met Office issues severe weather warning for Burnham-On-Sea area

Burnham-On-Sea residents have been warned to expect severe weather in the early hours of Wednesday morning (October 17th) after the Met Office issued a 'yellow' warning for the region.

"Further heavy rain, accompanied by high winds, is expected between midnight and 6am and, with the ground already saturated, this brings a risk of localised disruption from flooding," added a Met Office spokesman.

The Environment Agency has numerous flood warnings in place across the South West, including along the Bristol Channel coastline covering Burnham, Brean and Berrow.

It says strong winds, combined with high tides, could cause flooding. The high tide in Burnham will be at 8.39am in the morning.
