Abstract

The combination of high tides, strong winds and low pressure between the 5th and 7th of December 2013 caused a destructive storm surge along the east UK coastline. Along parts of the North Norfolk coast this tidal surge reached higher levels than the devastating surge caused by the 1953 storm. Loss of life due to flooding was avoided due to improved defences and responses, however, natural and man-made sea defences were breached and large areas of low-lying coastal land was flooded.
