Storm Event

Severity ? 2

Receptor and Consequence

15th September 1935 was associated with coastal flooding in Barton-on-Humber according to Zong and Tooley (2003). At least 16 residential properties were flooded here, with extensive damage to furniture and several victims left homeless (The Times, 1935). All of the residents evacuated the area. In a separate source (but likely to be part of the same event), there was a storm surge along the English North Sea coastline during 16th September (Hickey, 1997) .
