Receptor and Consequence

This event was reportedly associated with the highest sea level in 40 years for some areas in the Solent, although a lack of wind and the high air pressure prevented notable coastal flooding (Ruocco et al. 2011). According to Zong and Tooley (2003), this event also saw coastal flooding at Putney, London.
