Following on only a couple of days from a previous storm, residential properties in south Hayling Island were inundated to a depth of over 2 ft. [0.6 m] during this event, with overtopping and flooding also observed in Eastoke, Milford and Lymington (Ruocco et al. 2011). Hurst Spit was partially damaged at its eastern end.
