Receptor and Consequence

This event was associated with widespread flooding along the south coast in Sidmouth, Dawlish, Budleigh Salterton, Lympstone and Southampton (Zong and Tooley, 2003). This follows from more severe flooding in the English Channel several days earlier – and may be part of the same event.
