Receptor and Consequence
This event was associated with a 285 yard [260 m] breach in the sea defences in Selsey, Hampshire which resulted in flooding in a nearby caravan park to depths of upto 18 inches [0.5 m] (Ruocco et al. 2011). There was also overtopping in Southsea, Portsmouth which left parts of the seafront closed off after flooding.
