Only in the car park of the block of flats where I live was there significant flooding. The drain was blocked and water built up to 8 inches or so.
Welly boots to the ready, a number of residents were out clearing drains of seaweed washed over by the rising tide and splashing waves. This civic action by the community prevented further flooding.
