    "With the predicted forthcoming weather and high tides, please ensure you have all batteries charged and equipment ready."

    Tendering District Council (Clacton) say:
    "The severe weather situation of both rain and strong winds, which is set to potentially cause flooding in Jaywick, is likely to reach its peak at lunchtime tomorrow afternoon, Friday, January 13.
