Receptor and Consequence

This event was associated with coastal flooding in Putney according to Zong and Tooley (2003), owing to a combination of heavy rainfall and high spring tides (The Times, 1958). Parked vehicles were left partly submerged, and some riverside gardens were flooded to a depth of 2 ft. [0.6 m].
