Receptor and Consequence

This was event was associated with localised flooding in the Solent (Ruocco et al. 2011). The A27 close to Portchester was inundated, along with local roads and some non-residential property in other nearby areas. Businesses were forced to close in Cowes when the High Street was inundated, and key transport routes in Southampton were also flooded with many vehicles broken down. Ruocco (2009) reported that properties on Wallington Shore Road experienced some flooding in their gardens.
