A fire crew from the Lowestoft South station have been called to rescue a man trapped in his home by flood waters.
Rest centres are to provide shelter and support to people forced to evacuate their homes on the Suffolk coastline today amid forecasts for the worst storm for nearly 60 years.
As the threat of flooding escalates, Waveney District Council and their operational partners Waveney Norse are considering the closure of parks, footpaths and promenades.
Waveney District Council leader Colin Law has said the authority is “gearing up for a critical situation” following the news that up to 1,000 homes and businesses could be evacuated today (Thursday).
About 1,000 properties in north Suffolk are “likely to be affected” as a result of the nine severe flood warnings issued by the Environment Agency along the county’s coastline.
